about

I (Nate) had this lyric in mind for a while before it came out in this song... "One day when I die I'm gonna go out like Hank Williams / From a broken heart in the back seat of my car.." It's easily the saddest line I've ever written... and we put it over an upbeat tempo in a major key. Gotcha!

lyrics

One day when I die
I’m gonna go out like Hank Williams
From a broken heart in the back seat of my car
I will wonder how I got there
And then I’ll remember you clearly
And I will wonder where you are

Because you ain’t nowhere No you aint Nowhere
You aint nowhere that I find myself
And now you aint got me
Out there walking the tightrope
Between who you were and who you really are

I suppose I’ll remember you best
On the beach out in the sunshine
Smiling right there next to me
And then I will remember
All the reasons that I loved
And I’ll try to forget all the reasons that I had to leave

Because you ain’t nowhere
No you aint Nowhere
You aint No where that I find myself
And now you aint got me
Out there walking the line
Like you did before in all the days of our time…

One day when I die
I’m gonna go out like Hank Williams
From a broken heart in the back seat of my car
