The interstates and eighteen wheelers
The sketches on the rest stop bathroom stalls
I call her from a hotel pay phone so far from it all
The odometer is hypnotizing
The tires turn the dirt for miles and miles
I wanna see the Nashville skyline
If only for awhile

Cause I heard about the party last night
I heard that there were drugs and fist fights
When all I see are miles of streetlights
That's when I miss home

So I try to forget but I die inside every time I miss it
Cause you're still three shy
Don't you forget it's not a party when we're gone
And if the cops come by,
Have a drink and tell em this one's for the boys
And I will try to forget that I'm gone

A thousand miles until the ocean
Casinos sit a couple miles ahead
This city's in the rearview mirror, Tennessee's in bed

Now I'm drinking at the blackjack table
A cigarette is hanging from my lips
My head is spinning round in circles as I take a sip
Cause I heard you split a cab ride last night
I hope you found your way home alright
Cause underneath a sea of bright lights
I feel alright here

    General Commentthis has became my new favorite song.

    its about them missing their hometown in tennessee, and how sometimes he wishes he was back home instead of on tour with the band.
