"The Turnpike Down" as written by and Evan Dando....
I'm lost in the see-through.
Pane always needs a bath.
Between a want and a need to,

Butterscotch streetlamps mark my path.
{Play verse chords}
My country was of thee
Now why'd you have to leave
How'd this come to have to pass
Butterscotch streetlamps mark my path

Mark my path, mark my path down.
Mark my path, mark my path down.
Mark my path, mark my path down.
Mark my path, mark my path down.

    General Commentsurprised nobody commented!

    to me this song's about someone you've known your whole life (possibly a best friend) leaving town for good and then feeling devistated, while having to think of your own path in life to go down on, needing the streetlamps, or any sign, to help make your decision.
