Levi Smith – That's What I Meant By Goodbye lyrics

Interstate 37 is paved with good intentions
I'm prob'ly 50 years from heaven
But I'm 15 miles from hell
With two lanes to myself

So thank God for Derek and Jesse
For pouring out their hearts to me
Side by side in my back seat
They never let me down
So I don't need anybody now

And I did my best to pretend
That I'm gonna' see you again
And I may cross your mind
Before I cross the state line
But if I don't call, don't be surprised
That's what I meant by goodbye

Just 'cause I don't know where I'm headed
That don't mean I'm lost
I'm an empty can kicked across an empty parking lot
And this is all that I could ever want

So I'll do my best to pretend
That I'm gonna' see you again
And I may cross your mind
Before I cross the state line
But if I don't call, don't be surprised
That's what I meant by goodbye

I didn't say I'd see you later
'Cause I know that I might not

Yellow lights are yellin' at me
On the edge of town
And one cold night in Corpus Christi
Is not enough to make me turn around
Much less make me settle down

So I'll do my best to pretend
That I'm gonna' see you again
And I may cross your mind
Before I cross the state line
But if I don't call, don't be surprised
That's what I meant by goodbye
Goodbye
And I may cross your mind
Before I cross the state line
But if I don't call, don't be surprised
Don't be surprised, baby
That's what I meant by goodbye
