Dedicated to Addie

lyrics

Oh these early mornings
When the sun gets in our eyes
Oh and the taste of cold coffee
While the mountains start to rise

And the backseat cargo sleeps
Upon the winding road
And the fast food mocks you
When the weather keeps you slow
And the sign post says
100 miles left to go
And we drive through the town
That we used to call our home

Oh this song that's playing
Heard a thousand times before
Oh and the scarf you've been knitting
Tumbles to the cluttered floor

And the backseat cargo sleeps
Upon the winding road
And the fast food mocks you
When the weather keeps you slow
And the sign post says
100 miles left to go
And we drive through the town
That we used to call our home

And the backseat cargo yawns
And stretches out her toes
And the lives you left behind
Are piling up beneath the snow
And the sign post still says
100 miles left to go
And we drive through the town
That we used to call our home

And we close our eyes
And we fall asleep at home
