Craig Kleeman – This Only Happens When I Drive lyrics

Pass the river once over,
Cross into the black,
Watch the syline sparkle
As I let it fade away.
The rear view's all I've got,
So I guess now's the time to say,
You were all I felt for a lifetime
Of broken promises I'll never forget.

Two more hours in Pennsylvania
With the radio on,
Ninety miles till I hit the border
Till I can't turn back.
The memory's all I've got
So I just hate goodbyes.
This is all I get in a lifetime,
Then I think I know that,
No I won't let,
I guess I'll take this drive.

Four hundred miles means I can't let go
Then this is my fault
I'll trade my promises for histories
Of all you gave to me,
These tears are all I've got
So I just hate being myself.
You are all I get in a lifetime
And I don't want anybody else.
