lyrics

Our corners curled, but we made such a beautiful girl.
And our friends all said, “well there goes her career.”
Did you have to listen to what they said?
We never asked you to let go of it.
Somewhere near a town called Hope on the open road,
but it’s not the same.
She waves like you wave, still knows your name.
Can tell that I’m thinking about you by the look on my face.
But you’re miles away, 15 hours away,
and I’ve lost track of the time spent trying to fill your place.
What was I supposed to say when you packed up your lenses and drove away?
I just choked on my words and let you escape.
And was she supposed to cry when you didn’t say goodbye?
Kind of quiet for the age of 3, I guess she saw everything.
Somewhere near a town called Hope on the open road,
but it’s not the same.
She waves like you wave, still knows your name.
Can tell that I’m thinking about you by the look on my face.
But you’re miles away, 15 hours away,
and I’ve lost track of the time spent trying to fill your place.
And that little girl that we both swore we’d, raise just graduate the first grade.
And she hasn’t seen you since who knows when.
The judge said you could have the weekends but you didn’t want them.
No I don’t want your money, I just want our daughter to have a mother and a family.
And when you locked yourself in that room she always knew just where to find you.
She would pound at the door, as you’d just ignore.
Our little girl is worth more than one second burns and fades,
so leave the print that way.
Yeah it’s not the same.
She waves like you wave, still knows your name.
Can tell that I’m thinking about you by the look on my face.
But you’re miles away, 15 hours away,
and I’ve lost track of the time spent trying to fill your place.
And that little girl that we both swore we’d, raise just graduate the first grade.
Where were you at when it all came tumbling down?
Did you even call at all?
