Roll down the window, let me hear the rain 
Let me hear her whispering, honey everything is OK 

Cause I've had enough bad news 
To last a lifetime 

Well I drove all night under a seasick sky 
And I made it by mid-afternoon 
And I hope she's home so she can hold me tight and tell me 
Everything is alright 

Cause I've had enough bad news 
To last a lifetime 

And I was struck by how much I remembered 
And how everything still looked the same 
When a neighbor I met in her hallway said 
"Looks like lover boy's too late again" 

So take your troublesome baggage 
And put it on the last train home 
Cause you can guess somewhere else in the world right now 
Someone else feels just as alone 

Cause I've had enough bad news 
To last a lifetime
