On the way home
This car hears my confessions
I think tonight I'll take the long way

In this weather
The wind outside is biting
It's left me feeling tired and exposed

You've been asking me to bleed
It seems these kinds of questions
Come too easy to you now

Your lack of shame comes naturally
I should not be surprised
I should have seen it sooner

Expect me to apologize
For things that you've done wrong
While you're inciting others

You're owning up to nothing
And I wish that I was gone
'Cause you're not going anywhere

And this damp air
It's fighting my defroster
My sighs, they ring victorious and fog this tinted glass

And it's clouded
And so is my head
The hint of these new tears are sharp
I try to choke them back

But it's useless
I'm useless against them
They are beating me with ease

On the way home
This car hears my confessions
I think tonight I'll take the long way

Expect me to apologize
For things that you've done wrong
While you're inciting others

You're owning up to nothing
And I wish that I was gone
'Cause you're not going anywhere

On the way home
This car hears my confessions
I think tonight I'll take the long way

    General CommentThis song is mosdef. one of my favorite songs, by anyone. Everything about is is perfect.. the lyrics, his voice, the guitar. And this part "Expect me to apologize for things that you've done wrong-While you're inciting others-You're owning up to nothing and I wish that I was gone, cause you're not going anywhere " <--- it's so true for when you're in fights.. atleast it is for me.
