City Driving

City driving
Always makes me think
of you
My heart fills and empties
Someday this nostalgia will fade
But not today
The beauty that was
Gives way to the reality that is
No matter how hard I fight it

Bumps in the road
Bridges to cross
There’s was a time I thought
It all held the map to your heart

The city sings this bittersweet song
My heart joins in
My head bows out
You and me together
We could have had everything …

Now even exit signs
Speak to me
Distant times and memories
Roads that used to lead to us
One way streets
Like pretty little lies
Red lights, goodbyes
