I know we're headed for the open road
Don't know where to go
We've got our separate ways in the same direction
Getting no where slow

We saw the end was coming, the credits rolling in
A few hundred miles back
Oh but our horizon tends to be deceiving
You never quite know where it's at

Baby can we just pretend we're not telling lies and this ain't ending
No talk no time no goodbyes
Nothing left of expectations just you and me and impulsive creations
With an alibi
If a moment is precious for it's brevity
Then this one's good as gold
It's a compromise of little white lies
The truth remains untold

Do what you will but don't go darlin'
No story ends before it's started
Final words and we'll be on our way
One last thing my dear departed
Save tomorrow for the broken hearted
Don't let it break today

    General CommentI just recently heard this song and think its amazing like every thing Ms.Bareilles does. Its about the end of a relationship.

    General CommentYeah and about waiting for it to end until the next morning. It's kind of like a denial, like "let's just have one last happy memory before we end it."

    General CommentHow is it that every Sara Bareilles song seems to articulate exactly what I am feeling at any given moment?
