i've been twice on the highway
back to texas, with heaven behind me
and it's a shame on our anniversary
we've nothing left to celebrate

darling, i can't replace you

i have to keep on moving
or i get lost in all i'm losing
i stay, drifting through my head
with the static you left

give me closure
it's all i want from you

    General Commentclosure - "a bringing to an end, a conclusion"

    i think this song is about getting over a love or relationship.. saying goodbye
    "i've been twice on the highway, back to texas with heaven behinde me" highway meaning leaving the love and heaven being 'the love/ the person'
    " i have to keep on moving or i get lost in all i'm losing" meaning the choice was made for a good reason, but he also regrets it in a way.
    "give me closure it's all i want from you" meaning give me the end... it's over kinda deal.

    anyways its a great song & an amzing band this is just what i get from the song.. what do others think?

    General CommentAlright I think the meaning of this song is pretty clear.

    Look at the name of the song, Miss Louisiana. The band is from Texas. So, there was a girl in Louisiana (the "heaven" he refers to) and "twice on the highway" means he drove to see her on their anniversary and is on his way back. But things between them had been growing distant and their relationship is fading.

    He sees it ending, and knows it can't go back to what it was. "I have to keep on moving/Or I get lost in all I'm losing" makes perfect sense. If he doesn't keep moving he'll get super depressed. So now he just needs closure, a definitive end, so that he can move on.

    Just to paraphrase.
