The Alternate Routes – Already November lyrics

I saw you three times, in a face in a crowd.
Called out your name just as clear and as loud.
As I could without thinking, it wouldn't be you.
For the lie in my head was a hope that died true.

And I saw what I thought was that look in your eye.
On the face of a stranger man standing in line.
Well I thought I'd move on now, when it comes to you.
Said I ran out of stars, one wish to come true.

Gone are the days where I still had the time.
And please tell my mother I'm doing all right.
But it's old... it's already gone is the life that I've known.
The life that I've known.

And it's Already November, we'd been driving all night.
Never thought we'd bring it this far.
In a working man's town, I though I'd see you around.
On the shotgun side, with my own two eyes.

And then I saw you three times, in a rear-view mirror.
Like the broken white stripes in the dark.
Could've sworn it was you, in the light of the moon
Ooh like a Tennessee cross in a fog.
