Ra Ra Riot – Backroads lyrics
[Verse 1]
Never get tired of silence on long roads
Maybe another life I will
Maybe I'll never know
We got all we need right here together
No one to hold us back again
No one to turn us in

[Pre-Chorus]
Pulled my car up to that ballroom
Top down, shotgun
You came runnin' outside
Tossed your heels into my backseat
Said, "we ain't comin' back this time"

[Chorus]
All night, drivin' low-lit back roads
Just keepin' out of sight
I'm prayin' we make that state line
And to the other side
We got a little gas left
And there's a feelin' in my chest
I don't know if they're seein' what I'm seein'
But there's a light on up ahead

[Verse 1]
Runnin' out of time if we stay here
Maybe another day we will
Guess we'll never know

[Pre-Chorus]
Pulled my car up to that ballroom
Top down, shotgun
And you jumped inside
Checked yourself in my rear view
'Cause we're leaving it all behind

[Chorus]
All night, drivin' low-lit back roads
Just keepin' out of sight
I'm prayin' we make that state line
And to the other side
We got a little gas left
And there's a feelin' in my chest
I don't know if they're seein' what I'm seein'
But there's a light on up ahead

[Bridge]
Now all this pain when it's over
But I can't deny it was fun
It's all the same when it's over
All we can do now is run

[Chorus]
All night, drivin' low-lit back roads
Just keepin' out of sight
I'm prayin' we make that state line
And to the other side
We got only one gun left now
And there's a bullet in my chest
I don't know if they're seein' what I'm seein'
But there's a light on up ahead

[Outro]
I don't know if they're seein' what I'm seein'
But there's a light on up ahead
It's not too far
