Dashboard Confessional – Shirts And Gloves lyrics

When I'm back from the road
And you're out on it
& I'm tired of this distance
& I believe it's over-rated.
And this phone tag game is endless
The novelty is wearing
I'm hoping time will pass
Without any assistance
Or convincing.

Road rules apply
There's so much action,
You're getting busy.
I'll call your cellular phone
To tell you TV night was
Lonely without you
& so am I...
So am I.

It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year.

So many high points on this last leg.
I can't wait to recount them
It seems like nothing's happened
Until I've shared them with you.
The note that you had called
Says you're half a day away
& you are heading home
Just in time for me to leave.

Road rules apply
There's so much action
I'm getting busy.
So make sure that I'm up to date
On TV night,
I hate to miss out.

I think I miss you most
On Wednesdays
& Saturdays.

It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year.
