"Exit Signs" as written by and Christopher C./hughes Johnson....
She knows how to tidy up
She keeps it picture perfect
You won't find one thing out of place
She knows how to stay hush-hush
She can keep a secret
Locked up and hidden far away
Something inside is bleeding
I know she's dying to get out and leave this all behind
And the lights go out and leave you blind
And a million times a day
She goes driving past that exit sign.

He hangs out in hospitals
He's done his share of waiting
Holding on, hoping for the best
He sees pictures in his head
Walking on broken bottles
He sleeps but never gets to rest
Something inside is bleeding
I know he's dying to get out and leave this all behind
And the lights go out and leave you blind.
And a million times a day
He goes driving past that exit sign.

It takes you over
(I know it)
It drags you under
I know there are times when all you know
that all you want is time to let you go
because you need some control,
but don't you go out and leave this all behind
Because the lights go out and leave you blind
And I know you'll find some space
Just keep driving past those exit signs.

    General CommentI love this song. I think the meaning of it is that someone loves the other person but they do not like back and they just need to move on and let go.

    General CommentI think this song is about how people can fall into a life that they don't really want, and even though they long to break free of it they just can't seem to build up the courage to take that exit and get out. The line "A million times a day he goes driving past that exit sign" is saying that there are plenty of oppurtunities to break free from this monotonous existence, yet he can never bring himself to sieze them and make a change. Or at least, that's what I get out of it anyway.
