There's a sadness in the air
On the train to Tennessee
And I know there's no angel watching over me

All I have to hold
Is this atlas and a note that reads
If ever you are ready to come home again
I'll be waiting up
But please don't be too long

You know I never meant to make you lonesome
But I got my own plans
And if you love me, understand
I've got to take this road to find out who I really am

So tonight, I'll take the long way home
And drink until I can't remember you
Or why I ever started

If I can't hold you
Gonna fold you like a note and keep you here
With me

Thought about your smile
On the car ride up to Madison
Are you still letting go?
Are you still letting go?

Cause I've been trying to move on
But I'm feeling so damn lost
Without your love
Without your love

Tonight, I'll take the long way home
And drink until I can't remember you
Or why I ever started

If I can't hold you
Gonna fold you like a note and keep you here
With me

I want you here
With me

Tonight I'll take the long way home
Won't you drink with me until the sun comes up?
Look at what we started

If I can't hold you
I'm gonna fold you like a note and keep you here
With me
