Broken yolk in western sky
My stomach turned, my mouth went dry
And I knew I'd never known fear before
I pressed my palms into the seat
Took one last look at you next to me
And kicked open the sliding door

And I threw myself out on the road
Torn flesh and broken bones
In the gravel and scattered trash
I faded into your past

I know it was a cowardly thing to do
And that an explanation is not an excuse
I just want you to understand
That love is only a type of greed
Of equal portions 'want' and 'need'
And you cannot divorce the two

I could not sleep at all
With all the rumble strip close calls
In the gravel and patchy grass
I faded into your past

When you think twice you arrive at the same conclusions
It's bad advice only if you use it

And then you disappeared from view
And you became somebody new
Near the exit's overpass
I faded into your past
Yes, I faded into your past
Yes, I faded into your past

    General CommentI love this song too. It's so strangely emotive, I can definitely relate.
