I wrote this song late one night while driving home down a long stretch of highway, but you probably could have guessed that.


it's late at night, and the highway's empty, but my instincts say "don't slow down here"
home is far away, and they don't speak my language
if I ask for help, I might insult their mom

it's a lonely road home

call me anytime
I'm alone here on the highway tonight
and everything I want is several hundred miles away
but it's alright

far away, by a fireside you stay, in a rocking chair with your knitting on your lap
you've been folding sheets and washing booster seats
and waking up every two and a half hours

her eyes are wide, she starts to cry
but you move as fast as the wind and she's in your arms
saying "don't be sad -- it's really not so bad
we're never really apart from the ones we love"

and separation cuts me deep but I cannot believe it keeps
when all the love that's in my heart gets stronger with each mile mark
people die and people leave, but I believe in this relief
distance is illusion

baby, don't you cry
it's been days but I'm coming home tonight
and everything I want is getting closer by the hour
and it's all right


from We're All In This Together, released August 17, 2009
