The Left Side of the Road

The Left Side of the Road

She used to like to sit on the porch
Counting the cars as they passed by
She said for every place they’re going
They’re leaving someplace else behind

I didn’t think much about it then
But now I think I understand
It’s easy to talk about leaving
When you’ve got leaving on your mind

Chorus:
We said we’d be together
Until the end of the line
But somewhere along the way
She must have changed her mind
I wonder where we got off track
But I’ll probably never know
Answers don’t come easy
On the left side of the road

We used to lie in bed and listen
To the lonesome sound of the trains
But trains sound a lot like goodbye
When you find you’re on different tracks

Then one day she said we had to talk
Said she had decided to leave
Did she hear that old highway call
Or did she just want to leave me

Bridge:
Was it pictures of far away places
The sparkling lights of town
Or something she’s looking for
That she still hasn’t found
Or was it simply wanderlust
That put an end to us

Chorus:
We said we’d be together
Until the end of the line
But somewhere along the way
She must have changed her mind
I wonder where we got off track
But I’ll probably never know
Answers don’t come easy
On the left side of the road
