Don't know why Tory came by
But I could see by the look in her eyes
Tory'd been driving 'round the town for a while

Playing with the thought of leaving

Don't know why, but Tory just smiled
And mentioned something about how you were right
Must have been hard to see through the tears she was hiding

She said "I might not be seeing him soon"
"I've got a few things I've been waiting to do"

Hey, Tory came by
Tory came by tonight
Hey, Tory came by
She says to say goodbye

Looked outside at the car in the drive
And the suitcase on the back seat inside
Sure it's so she can't look out behind at the road

She said "I might not be seeing him soon"
"I've got a few things I've been waiting to do"

Hey, Tory came by
Tory came by tonight
Hey, Tory came by
She says to say goodbye

Don't look down, she seemed alright
You might be asking where is Tory tonight?
Somewhere out on the highway I'm sure she'll be fine

    John is talking to a friend saying that Tori came by to say goodbye. Apparently Tori is the friend's ex, because of the like "said something about how you were right".

    It's a pretty song and I like the fact that it's non-subjective. Most of John's songs have "I" in them way too much. This song has nothing to do with him. It's between two of his friends.
