I sat there in the dark
Searching for a missing heart
With empty hands and heavy heart
I tore it all apart

Red letters on the overpass
Red letters, red letters
Some things weren't meant to last
Keep running

Trap was poisoning my mind
So I left it all behind
If I stepped into the yard
Then I opened up the car

Red letters on the overpass
Red letters, red letters
Some things weren't meant to last
Keep running, keep running
Red letters on a light blue car
Red letters, red letters
Kept fighting and it wasn't that hard
Keep running

Had no where to or else to go
So I hit the open road
Headed for some other state
Or the bottom of a lake

Red letters on the overpass
Red letters, red letters
Some things weren't meant to last
Keep running, keep running
Red letters on a light blue car
Red letters, red letters
Kept fighting and it wasn't that hard
Keep running

Red buttons on a light blue dress
Red letters, red letters
I'm putting it all to rest
Keep running
Red letters on the overpass
Red letters, red letters
Some things weren't meant to last
Keep running
