6 hour drive to the cities
choke it down like poison
put her on the plane
watch it take flight
up up up
as my joy falls
down down down
like these autumn leaves

I hate letting go even though
I know YOU can care so much more than me
But I still can’t help to think that
they lied when they said
home is where the heart is

6 hour drive back home
As she flies back to Chicago
my heart in her hands
