I take the car and drive at night
The white stripes blur and ease my mind
When all that's left is a single light
Instead of this confusion
And I'm not certain of the way it was
And I'm not sure what I could've done
Oh I wonder if it'd be enough
To stop her from leaving
And I realize, the only thing I know is
She said I'm in love with someone else
She said, I fell in love with someone else
And I, I'm in love with someone
And that's all that I know for sure
I stopped the car and closed my eyes
I could see her face, but it takes a while
But it makes it like the morning lights
Slow and unfocused
So I go home and
She's sitting on the kitchen chair
Oh, her suitcase waiting by the stairs
Oh they're both worn out from all the years
And they're ready to let go
And I realize, the only thing that's shown is
She said I'm in love with someone else
She said, I fell in love with someone else
And I, I'm in love with someone
And that's all that I know for sure
She's in love with someone else
She said, She fell in love with someone else
And I, she's in love with someone
And that's all that I know for sure
And I'm on my knees
And I'm on my knees
And I'm on my knees
And I'm on my knees
Yes, and I realized
The only thing I know is
She said, I'm in love with someone else
She said, I fell in love with someone else
And I, I'm in love with someone
And that's all that I know for sure
She's in love with someone else
She said, she fell in love with someone else
And I, she's in love with someone
And that's all that I know for sure
I'm in love with someone else
She said, I fell in love with someone else
And I, I'm in love with someone
And that's all that I know for sure
She's in love with someone else
She said, she fell in love with someone else
And I, she's in love with someone
And that's all that I know for sure

    I think when he says, "i take the car and drive at night / the white stripes blur and ease my mind / when all that's left a single line / instead of this confusion" it means he went out drinking after she told him and drove while he was. That's what's making the white stripe blur. And how some people think alcohol "eases the pain" and "makes them forget," that's what he means by the single line instead of the hurt that he wants to forget about.
