about

The opening track of the album, the intro lick firmly establishes my musical roots, as does the bridge. Lots of Beatles-inspired "easter eggs" in this one.

lyrics

It all seemed simple enough,

Two young hearts and a pledge of love,

Driving west to the sea and the sand,

Your head on my shoulder, my heart in your hand.

I had two hands high on the wheel, but there was

Something in the air that I just couldn’t feel,

Like the heat rising off of the road,

It was a little distorted, left me feeling so cold.

Now I’m under a starless sky, and the moon’s just a hollow grin,

Laughing down at the shape I’m in,

I’m running in place in the middle of nowhere,

Ever since you said goodbye.

Mile after critical mile

Lookin’ for some hope and a reason to smile

Then came that faithless day,

I was out in the road, and you were driving away.

Now I’m under a starless sky, and the moon’s just a hollow grin,

Laughing down at the shape I’m in,

I’m running in place in the middle of nowhere,

Ever since you said goodbye.

Goodbye………Goodbye……..

Now I’m under a starless sky; the moon’s just a hollow grin,

Laughing down at the shape I’m in,

I’m running in place in the middle of nowhere,

I’m just running in place in the middle of nowhere,

I got tears on my face in the middle of nowhere,

Ever since you said goodbye.

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye,

Middle of nowhere,

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.
