Lies in July grew when complexity with time
When the leaves fell, we fell ourselves
We fell apart, it went to hell
Home, home with the radio on
Said that you loved someone

But I'm headed for the road
And you've got a job back home
It's good for you, it pays you well

So we set off for the road
And as you'd expect it started slow
But every show we played better than we'd ever played before
And each city that we'd go to I'd buy post cards for the road
But you know all that pretty scenery's got nothing on the beauty that's
Back home, home with the radio on
Said that you loved someone

But I'm on the road
And you've got a boy back home
Who's good to you, he treats you well

And each time we headed out, I'd pack a bag to keep around
In case we met up in some Prairie town, clean clothes might do you well
If I'd make it by your house, you'd ask me if I'd fucked around
I made mistakes and I made more
But I got smarter every tour
And I'd quit all for you but I know you'd never ask me to
We got love, but things just ain't that easy
And your eyes could cut through glass, you'd could stop heaven in its' tracks
And your smile would be worth dying for, it summons me to your front door
Back home, home with the radio on
Said that you loved someone

But I'm still on the road
And we've got hungry mouths back home
You're a family woman now and I'm still living on my own

Back at seventeen I said that you could be the one
Those were not just words my dear, I meant what left my tongue
Back home, home with the radio on
Said that you loved someone

But I'm still on the road and you've got folks you love back home
I think they need you more than I do now
I think they need you more than I do now
