I heard the news on Sunday
I didn’t speak till Thursday night,
Fell apart on Monday
Tried to tell myself that it would be alright.

How many miles to San Diego?
How many hours? And how do I ever let go?
It’s a long long night,
This could be the longest drive of my life.

There were things I’d never told you
And I guess now I’ll never have the chance.
I swear everything reminds me of you these days
And I’ll always miss the way that you dance.

The day that she told me
I’ll never forget she said sit down on the bed and light a cigarette.
I replayed every conversation in my head
I cried in public,
I tried to talk to the dead.

Two months isn’t really long enough it’s true,
Since April I’ve been writing all my songs for you,
But one million songs will not bring you back
I still dream about the day when all your friends wore black

How many miles to San Diego?
How many hours? How do I ever let go?
It’s a long long night,
This could be the longest drive of my life.

How many miles to San Diego?
How many hours? And how do I ever let go?
It’s a long long night,
This could be the longest drive of my life.
