I sit beside you
Take a good long look at you
I'm memorizing
So I'll always find you
Smiling at me in my rearview
And the broken white line
That takes me from you

Promise me
You'll wait for me
And kiss me one more time
Give me all you lonely nights
I'll keep 'em here with mine
I'll keep 'em here with mine

If I could stay in one place
I know what I'd do
I'd make my living, my love, with you
But I work on these stages
And I live everywhere
And it's everywhere that I want you

Promise me
You'll wait for me
And kiss me one more time
Give me all you lonely nights
I'll keep 'em here with mine, mine
I'll keep 'em here with mine

Listen to me
When I'm away
I'll be singing to you

It feels like I just
Got home yesterday
Now I'm packed and I'm ready
With nothing to say
I'm counting the white lines
In measures of roll time
They're broken in pieces
Like my heart today

Promise me
You'll wait for me
And kiss me one more time
Give me all you lonely nights
I'll keep 'em here with mine, mine
I'll keep 'em here with mine
