lyrics

You swore you’d never travel
But now you’re stuck in LA traffic
Wondering what you did with that book
Don’t know which ex-lover has it

I know I kept a thing or two
Of all the things that I took from you
I don’t know which way I’d have it
Don’t know which road feels more true

But I watched one road fade to dark
Cause I’d been driving it for hours and hours and hours
I passed a place where it once rained
I saw the wreckage of the ark

I felt the bodies buried deep
In the mud under my feet
Thought about how I will end up there someday
That thought still scares me from my sleep

That’s why I’m singing in the dark
Cause I’ve been lying here for hours and hours and hours
And every fear I cannot face
But there are some I can allow

Like the last time you spoke to me
You said you’re dying to get free
Now you think you’ve finally done it
But I don’t know if I believe

Oh, what a joy it must be
To face the people that you meet
With that look that I just cannot trust today
It used to bring me to my knees

You're why I’m singing in the dark
I could sing this song for hours and hours and hours
Every fear I cannot face
But just this one I can allow
