She lived just across the bridge
off of railroad route 1
her mom and daddy liked me
said we were too young
So, I'd throw rocks at her window
on a hot summer night
And we'd talk on her front porch
til the morning light

well, we turned 16
just couldn't wait
parked by the railroad tracks
on our second date
My lips are still burnin'
from that first kiss
I don't know if its her
or just the feelin' I miss

So many times
I try to find
that part of me
I left behind

Yeah, well lately I've been missin'
my innocent soul
I guess it's lost somewhere
down that long dirt road
Yes, lost somewhere
down a long dirt road

That last summer ended
way too soon
I took a job
She moved away to school
I can still see the dust trail
when she took off that day
She left more than her tracks
when she drove away

So many times
I try to find
that part of me
She left behind

Yeah, well lately I've been missin'
the love we let go
I guess it's lost somewhere
down that long dirt road
Yes, lost somewhere
down a long dirt road

So many times
I try to find
that part of me
that got left behind

Yeah, well lately I've been missin'
the life I used to know
guess it's lost somewhere
down a long dirt road
I know I should just move on
and let it all go

But I'm still lost somewhere
down a long dirt road
I'm still lost somewhere
down a long dirt road
