Trying to connect with the world a few words at a time


Staring at my steering wheel when our song came on

Sitting in traffic backed up on Lake Shore

Backed up like the blood in my veins

Cause my heart hasn't had a beat since you left

The only thing getting through are thoughts of you

Sitting bumper to bumper inside my mind

The road paved with good intentions and broken promises

The words I wanna speak

Sit single file at the tip of my tongue

Waiting to take their exit

I finally start moving

And just when I pick up speed

I pass by where we first kissed

I collide with the reality

That I'm stuck in place

The world may keep spinning

But I'm not going anywhere
