With a frame and a place for your face
It reveals what the rest of us see
It conceals what you'd like it to be
Oh God, it seems so very far
And if life is just a highway,
Then the soul is just a car,
And objects in the rear view mirror
May appear closer than they are.
Pass me by
In the rear view mirror
I'm gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rear view mirror diseappearing now
And it's too late for you and your white horse
To catch me now
But she just wouldn't ever take a peek
She said there's no need lookin' where you've already been
When you've headed down a one-way street
What's done I can't redo,
I'm just lookin' in my rearview, ridin',
Lookin' in my rearview, ridin'.
Sinking behind bridges in the road,
And I think of all the good things
That we have left undone.
Everything is so much clearer
Watch me wave it all goodbye, goodbye
I drive to eliminate the ball that I'm chained to.
Was gonna be my whole world...
