lyrics

So I’ve saved enough to get outta town
Away from all the city’s deafening sounds
Out onto the open road where I will shed this heavy load
Come the break of dawn I’ll hit the ground
Westward bound

A thousand miles to grandma’s house I go
A solitary journey this I know
I’m hopin’ that this open space will somehow help me to erase
The storm that you dragged in those months ago
A near fatal blow

Brooklyn to Milwaukee thinkin’ ‘bout your wrong doin’
Did I take the right course by stayin’ with ya
No denyin’ this thing’s the best that either one of us has goin’
So I say we may as well try
Oh-----------

You tell me that our love’s meant to last
This was a test and it looks like we passed
Or is it that we’re just in love with another form of us
Accidently buried with the past
And too afraid to ask

Brooklyn to Milwaukee thinkin’ ‘bout your wrongdoin’
Did I take the right course by stayin’ with ya
I’ve wasted all that’s in me to keep my pride and still forgive ya
How do you tell if you’ve done the best you can

Darkness rides at my heels
But there’s light ahead
Fallen angel hear me yell
Take me to your bed
Oh------

Up until you turned this right all wrong
I’d never been to happy for so long
So I’ll put on my toughest mask and finish this Olympic task
On your behalf while echoes of your song
Cheer me on

Brooklyn to Milwaukee thinkin’ ‘bout your wrongdoin’
Did I take the right course by stayin’ with ya
No denyin’ this thing’s the best that either one of us has goin’
So I say we may as well try
