lyrics

In the van an hour,
I'm already feeling sick,
Wish I'd had a little more sleep,
Or a little less to drink.
Five hours later,
Johnny, I really need a break,
Can we pull in soon,
I've got to tackle these shakes,
With a cold cup of coffee,
or a warm can of beer,
It's tough at the top,
It ain't easy down here.

It's hard to figure out,
A way to keep moving,
Without losing what you love at home.
My time is measured out,
Between places I've been,
And places I promised I'd go.

I'm arguing with strangers,
Smoking, I don't smoke,
Drinking till they throw us out,
Some places won't throw,
Me and Gavin, We've got no sense,
It's go, go, go, I'll pay for this tomorrow,
And struggle through the show.

It's hard to figure out,
A way to keep moving,
Without losing what you love at home.
My time is measured out,
Between places I've been,
And places I promised I'd go.

Two hundred and twenty on the autobahn,
Eric's in the back, somehow sleeping like a lamb,
Now Justin's finally quiet,
Must be playing with that phone,
The National are singing on the radio,
Something dark, something sad,
Something pretty and slow,
Something about someone out in Ohio.
I feel every drop of blood,
Every sinew, every bone,
Hey Gav, are you awake man,
I'm afraid to go home,

It's hard to figure out,
A way to keep moving,
Without losing what you love at home.
My time is measured out,
Between places I've been,
And places I promised I'd go.
