Sittin' up on the roof
Sneakin' a smoke by the chimney
Checkin' out the moon
And the city lights
He takes off his flannel shirt and he
Drapes it around her shoulders
He slides up behind her and holds on tight
And she says
"I don't want this night to end
Why does it have to end?"

[Chorus]
Tomorrow she'll be rollin' down I-10
Baton Rouge, LSU
Eighteen years in her rear-view
He's got a Friday paycheck lined up, down the block
At daddy's shop
It ain't much, but it's a job
They've been dreadin' this moment all summer long
The night before
Life goes on

Ooo, a tear falls off her cheek and
Right when it hits his arm he says
"Come on, baby, let's get out of here."
They take one last drive around town
And, man, it already looks different
He bangs the wheel and says
"Life ain't fair
And this growin' up stuff man I don't know
I just don't wanna let you go."

[Chorus]

Yeah, that's what my mama told me
And just like those kids
I didn't wanna listen to no one
Yeah, there's nothin' you can do
There's nothin' you can say
And I know how it feels when love goes away

Tomorrow she'll be rollin' down I-10
Baton Rouge, LSU
Eighteen years in her rear-view
He's got a Friday paycheck lined up, down the block
At daddy's shop
It ain't much, but it's a job
They've been dreadin' this moment all summer long
But here it is
They don't have long
The night before
Life goes on, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
