lyrics

1:41 in the morning driving home from the show
Sure hope that they liked it some nights I don’t know
Just want to reach someone maybe brighten their day
If my voice and my fingers can take a bit of that weight
I’ve got a piece of shit car filled all up with gear
Got a girl wants to live anyplace else but here
I got nine hundred dollars til the rent comes up due
I got nowhere to land and nothing else I can do

But I’ve got the moon looking over my shoulder
And I’ve got the roads all to myself
I’ve got the moon looking over my shoulder
And for a moment I don’t need anything else

Drivers side window edge of my view
Watch over me as I drive home to you
I’ll be hoarse when I wake up it’ll clear up by four
So I can do it again fifty miles and then
Load back in through the backstage door
Got a day job that barely makes up a fair wage
Got a fire inside me only cools off onstage
I’ve got forty-eight dollars and a ringing in my ears
And a feeling that I’m wasting all my best years

But I’ve got the moon looking over my shoulder
And I’ve got the roads all to myself
I’ve got the moon looking over my shoulder
And for a moment I don’t need anything else

9:00 high
Pale from weariness
Of climbing the heavens and peering down at the likes of us

Got seventeen bucks and a half tank of gas
And a lifetime of dreams that are fading away fast

But I’ve got the moon looking over my shoulder
And I’ve got the roads all to myself
I’ve got the moon looking over my shoulder
And for a moment I don’t need anything else
