A six pack in on a Sunday, another lazy afternoon
Checks his watch with the clock on the wall, it’s a quarter past two
Fumbles the keys in his pocket, plans his great escape
Says out loud I can still make Jackson, as if to seal his fate

I’m gonna love again. Though it won’t’ be today
I’m gonna see this through, gonna find a better way
And if I fall apart, I’ll leave the pieces where they lie
Like the autumn leave I’ll weather the storm til my heart finds wings to fly
He’s worn holes in the soles of his shoes, trying to find something real
He’s been taped where he was torn like a worn out dollar bill
She said she needed time and space, so he took her at her word
Now he’s starring down that interstate as the tears fall from her face.

Just like the colors of the aspen, his thoughts come and go
Every time he thinks of her, in his heart he knows…
