milemarking lyrics – banner pilot

i’ve chased this blue moon down all night
have i been gaining any ground?
your picture’s stapled to my dash
i’m done killing time in gray ghost towns

i’m heading south in search of life
the blinding turns, the twisting knives
now i’m just driving straight on

i’ll scr*pe the freezing rain from off this windowpane
a couple states from sane, eyes aching, drift, awaken
until the ice bleeds blue, until the green shoots through, until i get to you
i’ll brace for your screen door

gravity struck, i rolled downhill
seen depths i’ve never seen before
it’s hard to warm against concrete
can’t wrap your arms around a floor

so now i beat a fast retreat
back to slp and your street
can you, can you just hold on?

i’ll scr*pe the freezing rain from off this windowpane
a couple states from sane, eyes aching, drift, awaken
until the ice bleeds blue, until the green shoots through, until i get to you
i’ll brace for your screen door

living reckless and naive
it’s always so easy to leave but then it’s hard to get back
i closed my eyes and i looked at you, counted up all of my mistakes
choked some more muddy coffee back and i did my best just to stay awake

if i could just stay awake
if i could just stay awake
if i could just stay awake
don’t know why i left you

if i could just stay awake
if i could just stay awake
if i could just stay awake
don’t know why i left you
