It's three AM, I'm eating grilled cheese
Sitting on the floor with a map in front of me
I take my pen and draw a smile
On all the places that I would like to see

'Cause lately, been wanting to get back on the road
Because when I sit still for too long I start to feel alone
Well maybe I need to find a new state line
To point me to a place I can call home

CHORUS
What you see is only what you look for, I've been walking around so blind just
Acting like I'm gunna live forever, watching all of my chances die, well
I'm not waiting for tomorrow to let it slip away
I'm not waiting for tomorrow – it's got to be today

I've dated rich and I've dated poor, slept at the Ritz and on the floor
Well if I'm wiser than before I haven't learned how yet
I need to make a new mistake
Because lately I've been faking it

And maybe you think I'm a fool because I go
When everybody else we know is settling in
But I'm not sticking around because I'll drown
I've got to go and teach myself to swim

CHORUS
What you see is only what you look for, I've been walking around so blind just
Acting like I'm gunna live forever, watching all of my chances die well
I'm not waiting for tomorrow to let it slip away
I'm not waiting for tomorrow – it's got to be today

I packed my jeans into a suitcase
I need to breathe in the sweet Southern air
And no I don't know where I'm driving to
But I don't care

CHORUS
What you see is only what you look for, I've been walking around so blind just
Acting like I'm gunna live forever, watching all of my chances die well
I'm not waiting for tomorrow to let it slip away
I'm not waiting for tomorrow – it's got to be today

I'm not waiting for tomorrow
I'm not waiting for tomorrow
I'm not waiting for tomorrow
I'm not waiting for tomorrow
