The road salt shines like diamonds
On ninety five
The new jersey turnpike
Is a sea of red taillights
Fare well darling
I’m glad you got out
From this wasteland
From this dying town

We were never lovers
Were we ever friends
Or were we just lost souls
Crossing paths again
We met when we were just kids
I remember the day
You were crying on the hill
Playing run away

Are you still running from your demons
Or are you gunning for your dreams
Everybody pays a price it seems

We’re all fighting our own battles
But not the ones we choose
You better keep that fire burning inside of you

Refinery lights shine
Like a palace made of stars
Glowing in the night
As we drive to another bar
The highway is on fire
Humming low and deep
It used to keep me up at night
Now it helps me sleep
