"Only an Hour Ago" as written by and Marshall Crenshaw....
I drew the shades down and locked the door
The telephone rang, I didn't want to know why
On a wind-blown mountain road
I'm driving alone, under the darkening sky

Until only an hour ago
Had a head full of grave concern
It was only an hour ago
I'm gonna leave it all alone
For when and if I do return
I've got this road all to myself

For on and on as far as my eyes can see
With ten kinds of misery, in back of me
Right where I want it to be
Until only an hour ago
Those four walls were closing in tight

It was only an hour ago
I'm not many miles away
But I'm feeling more like "right"
I see the lights of another town
Down around the other side of the hill

But I don't feel like slowin' down
When tomorrow comes
I might be movin' still
This is where I wanna be for awhile

In not much time at all
I know I'll be able to smile
Until only an hour ago
Those four walls were closing in tight

It was only an hour ago
I'm not many miles away
But I'm feeling more like "right"

I had to go
It was just time
Too many mean things on my mind
I see the lights of another town
Down around the other side of the hill

But I don't feel like slowin' down
When tomorrow comes
I might be movin' still
This is where I wanna be for awhile

In not much time at all
I know I'll be able to smile
Until only an hour ago
Had a head full of grave concern

It was only an hour ago
I'm gonna leave it all alone
For when and if I do return
(Only an hour ago)
