See Me Through




Well I wrote myself another sad sad song, like I do, 

just to pass the time, there it goes


i met her down in a basement bar with a friend

she said she went there sometimes, yes she did


well i took that stage and i sang my tune, like i know

and the night was fine, yes it was


and if i could count on you

i know you'd see me through


well i packed my bags and i said goodbye to my town

you know i do that sometimes, yes i do


highway miles how they came and went in the wind,

I'm making tracks for the coast, up ahead


well her hazel eyes in the motel nights of my mind

they put a spell on me, yes they did


pushin' through another fever dream on the road,

don't cross that line, keep it straight


but she danced and smiled in my weary head all the way

she helped to pass the time, yes she did


like a stowaway in my lonely heart where she slept

she made the highway bloom, bittersweet
