She left her books, her car, her clothes, and a note
But all she wrote was, "Tonight I'm leaving on a train."
She says she's headed west
To make it right for one more night
And, well, I don't blame her if she is
But he thinks it's just one more sunset
And after all, it's her fault
If she hasn't caught on yet

So why'd you have to go?
Is there something I could say to make you turn around?
Cause nights like these I wish I'd said don't go
Is there anybody there?
Can anybody help to get me out of here?
Cause you're walking down a road that I can't go

She says she's headed west
To make it right for one more night
And, well, I don't blame her if she is
But he thinks it's just one more sunset
And after all, it's her fault
If she hasn't caught on yet

So why'd you have to go?
Is there something I could say to make you turn around?
Cause nights like these I wish I'd said don't go
Is there anybody there?
Can anybody help to get me out of here?
Cause you're walking down a road that I can't go

Try as I might,
I Just can't handle this
I lost myself inside a drunken kiss
And I, all that I wanted was to walk you home
Save the sad song for the sing-along
Oh my God, I just can't handle this
I lost myself inside a drunken kiss
And I, all that I wanted was to walk you home
Save the sad song for the sing-along

And she sings you'll be my tourniquet
As the record on the stereo
Plays her favorite song for two whole days
And the track stretched out for miles and miles
And what she'd give for one more smile
And how she hoped he missed her
Cause, God, she missed how he would kiss her

So why'd you have to go?
Is there something I could say to make you turn around?
Cause nights like these I wish I'd said don't go
Is there anybody there?
Can anybody help to get me out of here?
Cause you're walking down a road that I can't go

So why'd you have to go?
Is there something I could say to make you turn around?
Cause nights like these I wish I'd said don't go
Is there anybody there?
Can anybody help to get me out of here?
Cause you're walking down a road that I can't go
Yeah, you're walking down a road that I can't go
Yeah, you're walking down a road that I can't

    Maybe they were happy together but something happened and they fell out, ("I lost myself inside a drunken kiss.") So she left and then the next one took her for granted, too confident to think she would ever leave ("But he thinks its just one more sunset") and was comfortable in his cheating to change ("And after all its her fault if she hasn't caught on yet.") But with guy number one, even though they miss each other, she can't turn around. And he knows he could never chase her down ("cause you're walking down a road that I can't go") What was done is done and there is no taking it back. So he is constantly reminded of what he had and will never have again ("as the record on the stereo plays her favorite song for two whole days") And she travels farther away, she wishes she could take it all back ("as the tracks stretched out for miles and miles, oh what she'd give for one more smile")

    I think that she died, drunk driving or something. And the line "you're walking down a road that i can't go. " meaning that she might have died, and he cant follow her.

    I think this is about a guy who loves and cares about a girl, but she is with another guy who doesn't appreciate her. It's almost like the other guy is being friend zoned.

    I think it's about how his girl friend moved to the west and he didn't stop her, but now he's wishing he did because he now realizes he was taking her for granted and they miss each other.
