3:35
Six hours into this drive,
This cup of cold coffee is barely keeping me alive,
And thinking about you is all that I can do... tonight.

Tired eyes please see this through,
I'm staying awake just to sleep with you.

If I'm not there,
When you awake,
Please don't be scared,
Make no mistake,
I'll be home soon,
To sleep with you,
Driving down these endless roads,
My compass is your heart that guides me home.

5:35,
Eight hours into this drive
LG brake lights,
Wink at me like bloodshot eyes,
80 miles still left to go,
80 miles 'till I'm in bed with you... Tonight.

Tired eyes please see this through.
I'm staying awake just to sleep with you.

If I'm not there,
When you awake,
Please don't be scared,
Make no mistake,
I'll be home soon,
To sleep with you,
Driving down these endless roads,
My compass is your heart that guides me home.

Temecula sunrise,
Flooding these half closed eyes,
My windshield's cemetery,
Smeared across a framed orange sky,
I crack a yellow smile,
Next exit 3 more miles,
15,800 and 40 feet till I'm in bed with you

If I'm not there,
When you awake,
Please don't be scared,
Make no mistake,
I'll be home soon,
To sleep with you,
To sleep with you,

If I'm not there,
When you awake,
Please don't be scared,
Make no mistake,
I'll be home soon,
To sleep with you,
Driving down these endless roads,
My compass is your heart that guides me home.
So guide me home.
