Well I love her and she's leaving
She met a man plays in a band last weekend
And he lives out on the West Coast and
She says she's gotta go

[Chorus:]
But it's a long long way from Myrtle Beach to L.A.
Anything could change her mind
One sunset, one regret
She could turn around, come back, and be mine
Happy endings happen all the time

Well she's almost finished packing
So for 2, 000 miles a lot can happen
There's gonna be days and days of long stretches
Maybe she'll come back to her senses

[Chorus:]
Cause it's a long long way from Myrtle Beach to L.A.
Anything could change her mind
One sunset, one regret
She could turn around, come back, and be mine
Happy endings happen all the time

Well I ain't waiting on no phone call
I ain't getting my hopes up at all
I ain't setting myself up for a fall

[Chorus:]
Cause it's still a long long way from Myrtle Beach to L.A.
Anything could change her mind
One sunset, one regret
She could turn around, come back, and be mine
Then everything would be just fine
Yeah happy endings happen all the time

Well it's a long long way from Myrtle Beach to L.A.

    This song hits me just right, I've loved women that have met that one guy and they leave me for him. NO matter what happens, part of me still loves them
