90 Mile Light

How did we get to where we are today,
trying to force the pieces where they just don’t fit.
Well, I can’t continue going on this way.
I’m losing my mind over it.
How many times must I try before I can get it right?

I remember when the thought of you
used to illuminate the road I drove when I would go see you
and the mountaintops that towered around
showed where I felt above the ground to take you like I had,
but that 90 mile light is gone and it’s not coming back.
It’s not coming back, no.

I know you’ll think that I’m just giving up.
And that this is just another battle we must win.
But I can’t continue fighting every day.
I’m losing my mind over it.
How can you be beside me and still feel so out of reach?

I remember when the thought of you
used to illuminate the road I drove when I would go see you
and the mountaintops that towered around
showed where I felt above the ground to take you like I had,
but that 90 mile light is gone and it’s not coming back.
It’s not coming back.

Reaching this point brings such hurt,
but not all things that fade lose their worth, no.

I remember when the thought of you
used to illuminate the road I drove when I would go see you
and the mountaintops that towered around
showed where I felt above the ground to take you like I had,
but that 90 mile light is gone and it’s not coming back.

I gave you all that I had, but that 90 mile light is gone
and it’s not coming back.
