well things have been gettin' kinda heavy these days
tryin to figure out which road to take
there's many decisions to be made
and the only i feel ok is when i'm in your arms

dana, baby girl, you've got me missing you all day long
from the second i wake up to the second my day is done
with every breath that i take in
well ill swear on every inch of my lungs
i'm with you

yeah, i don't how to say this any other way
but every little thing is going to be alright
so baby don't you worry
cause i have got complete faith that things will be ok
it's just for now we sing

so far away from home everythings such a daze
no i don't want to go
it hurts to drive away
in the rearview mirror i can see the breaklights hit your face
as your waving me goodbye

one good thing about the road
is that it opens up your eyes
it will make you miss your home
and everything that's right
in your heart will be as clear
as the north carolina days
spent realizing who you are

don't ever change
don't ever change
don't ever change
don't ever change

    General CommentMy friend was Dana's cousin.
    All songs pretty much were about her.

    General CommentI love this song so much. It makes me want to cry. It's actually by Promise of Redemption (Shane's side project) though.
