one more mile

it’s the morning
and it’s here again
that feeling
of when we were friends
and I’d count all the turns
as I drove on in
just one more mile

like the sunrise
revealing a new day
blank pages
with words left to say
tearing memories
from days gone past
just one more mile

when our eyes met
and burned right through
true emotion
unlike nothing we knew
take a picture
to sleep next to you
just one more mile

jump in my car
head down the road
different direction
my heart has been told
rearview mirror
as you fade from my view
just one more mile
