It was a damn cold day when I rode away
Remember I heard her say,
"never be back here again, go on with yourself"
nothing you can do about it, don't want to talk about it
damn cold day yea' but I got it I'll never forget
now I'm on a train goin' someplace again
another mile leaving me so far behind
don't slow down, gotta make it on time,
I need the patience to leave well enough alone
well I'm rollin' out the station, gotta lay down my track
it's a one way ticket that I bought
and you know I'm not ever comin' back
now it leaves out this way, but you know that's allright with me
see you're turnin' circles like that loco, riding me
It was a damn cold nite when I threw that fight,
you know I wasn't ever right,
I never could lie just to spite this war on my hands
nothing I could say about it, I'd still get blamed about it,
never seen no way around it, no thing is grey.
well that feelin' burned right thru me, yea,
flood me with those 'bloodshot eyes'
I bet she's still thinkin' of me,
but I'm a poor excuse for bad company.
Am I the reason why she hates every man that she sees?
I wear that Halo so, comfortably
am I the reason why she's living for a compromise,
a contradiction, living out a lie
now we’re on a train, goin’ someplace again
another mile leavin’ us far behind
don’t slow down, I gotta make it on time
we need the patience to leave, well enough alone
