Gone away far from home, the weekend’s over
Let’s pack up and start again
Twenty days on the road, just left Port Dover
With sixteen to go

I just called my mom to tell her I miss her
I just wrote my girl (Elizabeth)
Man I can’t remember the last time I kissed her
Soon I’ll be at home with all my friends
After thirty-six days

Lights go down the noise has faded
We’ll leave this town anticipated
Soon we’ll be back on the road again
All is lost, but not forgotten
One by one the fights we’ve fought
And soon we’ll be back on the road again
For thirty-six days

We turn around, face the crowd
We’re starting over
This time north of L.A.
Once again her we are
It’s a new beginning
I’d live this life any day

I feel so alive, though a part of me is gone
And this life I lead, is the life I’ve dreamed of
Since I was the age of twelve
Now I’ll sing with all this is within me
After thirty-six days on the road

Lights do down the noise has faded
We leave this town anticipated
Soon we’ll be back on the road again
All is lost, but not forgotten
One by one the fights we’ve fought
And soon we’ll be back on the road again
And soon we’ll be back on the road again
Soon we’ll be back on the road again
For thirty-six days

    General CommentElizabeth is his girl. Durr. Or was. I don't even know. I feel so behind.

    He's explaining about how he feels about leaving for tour. He loves his role so much but he would hate to leave it because he's been dreaming of where he's at since he was 12 years old. He's finally reached his goal and has accomplished what he wants to accomplish, but he still feels like he's missing out on everything else.
    At least that's what I think.

    General CommentElizabeth is Jason Dunn's wife. Not to be confused with Anne-Marie Hunsaker who sings on the song "From Underneath"
