The echoes of the evening
Are still ringing in every last inch
Of every ounce of strength
I use to hold this pose
To stare transfixed by the highway
I know what you’re looking at
And I know exactly what you’re thinking
Just like always

I’m sorry
I’m not so strong as I used to be
I’m sorry
I just don’t have the nerve to cry
I’m sorry
I’m so sorry

Route 29 runs like a sad song
It’s certainly not the first song
That boils up from the inside like a pain
It’s not the sound of so long
Nor the fear of rights gone so wrong
That proves we still may never feel the same
Tomorrow’s just as sad as it’s ever been
So even still, I’d do it all again

The taste is slightly bitter
But I’ll still sing every last note
Of every last song
I wrote to make you smile
But I stare transfixed by the highway
I just can’t bring myself to speak
But you know what I’m thinking
Just like always

I’m scared now
I’m not so strong as I’d like to be
I’m scared now
I just don’t have the nerve to try
I’m scared now
I’m so scared now

Route 29 runs like a sad song
It wouldn’t be the first song
That drives up like a spike out from this road
It’s not the sound of so long
Nor the fear of rights gone so wrong
That makes it oh-so-clear we’ll never know
Tomorrow’s just the same it’s always been
But even still, I’d do it all again
