We passed the stores, we passed the hotels 
Filled our car with gasoline 
We drove that night, I saw the moon 
Almost got us in an accident 
And then at the rest stop 
When that woman tried to steal my wallet 

It felt like an adventure 
Isn't that what you would call it? 
Isn't that what you would call it? 
You're my road buddy, but I'm lonely all the time 
I thought we'd be joking, having long talks on late night drives 

But you drive so bad I lost my patience 
So pass the chips and turn the station 
This is not a romance with the road 
Where the moss grows up the trees 
To where the bird is rusty 

I thought we'd find each story like a snakeskin or an arrowhead 
But we only stop at fast food places 
They hate their jobs, I understand 

They try to act familiar, but they're floating just above the land 
And we are all floating 
You're my road buddy, but I'm lonely all the time 

I thought we'd show that friendship could be stronger than the crossroads double back 
I thought I heard the Tori sing, I'll take that thing I 
This is not a romance with the road 

In those cliffs are the same as in the magazines I have at home 
And the tall grass reminds me of the same dreams I had at home
I thought life was a road and I wanted to begin it 
I said, my friend and I going on a trip so I could only stop a minute 
We go to the venting machines
I want to watch these kids with their mother

Sipping on their juice boxes and smiling at each other
And maybe that's their Dad on the phone
Saying, hey Mom, you couldn't wait, go ahead, have dinner
'Cause we're running just a little late 
But we're on our way 

Road buddy, road buddy, I heard about the boxcars and the family of travelers 
But there's real estate sides in the cornfields 
I know there's love, I bet there's trouble 
But you just can't spend a lifetime on the road 

And there's something I finally faced 
I finally think I come from some place 
This is not a romance with the road
