University Drive shrunk in my rearview
Leaving behind a few loads of laundry
Folded imperfect
Not how he liked them at all

Take leave
The highway god whispered
Turn a blind eye to the life that you've tried here
So long to the big box stores that have opened
Handing out free opening day balloons

This is more than the risk
I set out to take
I'm nothing if not alone here

One two three, two two three, one
Count out the dishes, they're almost done
He's working tonight yes the golden son
And I won't be waiting up

Oh to try, to give it your all
To cut out the coupons, to melt into gold
To plug up the missing parts of the story
The parts that would give it its once and for always

But still the spring it will ride in
Great breezes behind it
To loosen the latches that held closed the cabinets
And all of the best picked
Cans of a shopper will roll round the room

This is more than the mess
We set out to make
We're nothing if not alone here

One two three, two two three, one
Count out the dishes, they're almost done
He's working tonight yes the golden son
And I won't be waiting
I, I won't be waiting
No I won�t be waiting up

    General CommentThe lack of comments on Lucy's songs makes me sad.:[ I'm not sure, but I think this song is about someone leaving their boyfriend at college. Any other ideas?
