lyrics

This highway I’m on is littered with loners
Hitch-hiker dreams that have never come true
Thumbs in the air and matted down hair
Hidden from view

I borrowed a car but the fuel light’s flashing
Got a guitar but it won’t stay in tune
There's a cardboard sign and a broken white line
Between me and you

Well they say that the cream
Always rises to the top
But I’ve heard that shit floats
Can you tell me which one I have got?

Cause I have come too far along this beaten track
To ever give a single thought to turning back
But I get so lonely on this road
Why can’t I pull over the car and let you in?
Why can’t I risk a little kinship now and then?
To be your companion and be your friend

With both hands on the wheel and one eye on the time
I know we've got the same destination in mind
So why do I feel like I need to do this alone

Got a Michelin map but it's ripped at the seams
Looking back I see the days that got choked by my dreams
Your cardboard sign could be the ticket I need

Well they say that confession is good for the soul
But all this raking around in the dirt has taken its toll

But I have come too far along this beaten track
To ever give a single thought to turning back
But I get so lonely on this road
Why can’t I pull over the car and let you in?
Why can’t I risk a little kinship now and then?
To be your companion and be your friend

Yeah I have come too far along this beaten track
To ever give a single thought to turning back
But I get so lonely on this road
Why can’t I pull over the car and let you in?
Why can’t I risk a little kinship now and then?
To be your companion
To be your champion
Your companion
And be your friend
