Lost Highway

Another Saturday.
The cops all drove away.
The party’s slow decay
Goes on and on . . .

And pretty soon you’ll graduate
And Jenny’s moving out of state,
And out of mind, and out of time, but wait,
She’s got some things to say to you.

Oh, repeat the words, repeat the way
You left her on that Saturday.
The last words that you heard her say
“You’re not afraid. You’re just too late.”

And now you know it’s not the end.
It just goes on. The living’s in
The day to day. All days you waste.
You say you won’t. You say

The hardest part’s not when it’s over
(When it’s over you’ll know why)
It’s looking back over your shoulder
(When it’s over, when it’s over)
At kids you knew out on the corner
(When it’s over you’ll know why)
In summer clothes. September’s closer
(When it’s over, when it’s over)

And now you know it’s not the end.
It just goes on. The living’s in
The day to day. You’re not afraid.
You’re just too late, you’re just—
