Why can't you just balance me?
I know that it won't be easy
But if you push me off the ledge
There'll be nothing left instead
So what's really harder?
I'd like an apology
For what these past weeks have done to me
I know you tend to make a mess
Should expect nothing less
But darling give me some therapy

It was hard for me to go
Hard for me to watch you as I drove away
Though part of me is gone
Left a piece of me inside that southern state

So I'll be honest for you
Just promise that you're honest too
Cause you still have my heart
Still found a way to pour it out
I don't want to be your whole life
It's just I want to be in it
So why can't we just try?

And if you change your mind I'll be there
As fast as I can go through road or air
I know sometimes it seems like I don't care
But I just have to know you're still there

It was hard for me drive
Hard for me to look at all those exit signs
That once meant I was close
Driving all those miles on the other side

It was the way that you looked at me
And all those nights we spent fighting sleep
Because the truth is that why should I dream
When I have all I need?
I would've turned that car around
It wasn't like I was homeward bound
Because if home is really where the heart is
With you I'd be safe and sound
