One More Day*

(back)                                                                    (listen / download)

Cold night in the middle of nowhere, cup of coffee in my hand
Just got off the phone with you, now I just don’t understand
Why fight like strangers making moves out on our own
Angry words drawing battle lines, together never felt so alone

I want to be forever beside you
Thought it feels like you’re a million miles away
I want to spend my life dying with you
Love will guide us through one more day

So I hop in my old car and I hit the road
Chicago’s not so far away, this love is such a heavy load 
Racing to you at 80, to chase these dark clouds away
Writing love songs in my head, singing words I want to say

I want to be forever beside you
Thought it feels like you’re a million miles away
I want to spend my life dying with you
Love will guide us through one more day

Now I’m lying in your broken bed, a slice of heaven in this hell
Grew a little in our time apart, being with you I can tell
All these reasons for going back never mattered much to me
Time for us to put it all to rest, because this is perfect company

I want to be forever beside you
Thought it feels like you’re a million miles away
I want to spend my life dying with you
Love will guide us through one more day
