I remember driving in our car
Forty miles outside of
Where we're going but I don't know where we are
Miles away from nothing

Funny how things can change so fast
I thought I knew so much more
Before we left
Searching for answers on the map
Texas in the mirror

Mama, where are we going
Feels like we are slowing down
The sky is getting closer
To the ground, to the ground

It's Texas in the mirror

Looking for a reason in her eyes
She sings along with Elvis
Turned around and never asking why
We left it all behind us

Funny how things can change so fast
I thought I knew so much more
Before we left
My six year old hands pressed on the glass
Texas in the mirror

Mama, where are we going
Feels like we are slowing down
The sky is getting closer
To the ground, to the ground

Mama, where are we going
Feels like we are slowing down
The sky is getting closer
To the ground, to the ground

Mama, where are we going
Feels like we are slowing down
The sky is getting closer
To the ground, to the ground
To the ground, to the ground
To the ground, to the ground

It's Texas in the mirror

Just Texas in the mirror

    General CommentI feel like this song was written by Michelle about her and her daughter driving in their car through the American Southwest. It's really quite beautiful and simple.
