Hello Ohio, how ya been looking real good, like the last time I saw you and it's been far too long since I found my way back home now I admit it's true, I think about you only when I'm lonely but more often than I'd like to and these memories always in my mind of all the things I've left I can't leave them behind And this roadmap didn't come with a compass and I don't know north from south chasing some kind of dream and I wouldn't change a thing but I can't be looking back now Made my way east through Toledo saw the ghost of you by the side of the road and it said, how does your garden grow? when you pulled up all your roots so long ago? now I never made a promise I couldn't keep and I might have sold my soul for a can of gasoline but my garden grows just fine how 'bout you keep yours and I'll look after mine And this roadmap didn't come with a compass no I don't know north from south chasing some kind of dream but I wouldn't change a thing and I can't be looking back now Ohio, I'm just passing through no you don't need to make up the bed in the extra room and I know it's late, but I got things to do Ohio, I'll be seeing you Hello 3 a.m., here we are chasing taillights down this highway in the dark but I wouldn't have it any other way why am I most at home in the places that I can't stay? And this roadmap didn't come with a compass no I don't know north from south chasing some kind of dream and I wouldn't change a thing but I can't be looking back now I can't be looking back now

You and I were trouble from the start a bottle rocket, Roman candle waiting for a spark and if there was a way to wreck that train we were gonna find out the hard way So kiss me like you did that year Remind me how we found one another You and I on the first day of summer Like a sweet song in my ear Promise me a love like no other You and I on the first day of summer You and I -- they left us where we fell bored with angels trying to save us from ourselves and it felt so good just giving in that way we made it look so easy couldn't keep our hands away So kiss me like you did that year Remind me how we found one another You and I on the first day of summer Like a sweet song in my ear Promise me a love like no other You and I on the first day of summer You and I on the first day of summer It's the sweetest... It's the sweetest kind... It's the sweetest... The sweetest kind of lie. So kiss me like you did that year Remind me how we found one another You and I on the first day of summer Like a sweet song in my ear Promise me a love like no other You and I on the first day of summer You and I on the first day... It's the first day of summer

For all the times I was less than perfect and every person who would say I deserved it for every moment I was all but convinced things were never gonna get better for every day they made me feel like a failure and all the damage that would do to me later the guilt it never leaves but these thoughts aren't breaking me I don't need a reason to feel this way I'll put it back together, maybe not today so don't say it’s alright things ain’t always gonna be alright and I don't believe there's a need for doubt things are gonna happen, maybe not right now so don't say it’s alright things ain’t always gonna be alright For all the years that I felt that I wasted the realization that I cannot replace them for every whispering voice in my head that ever stopped me from trying for every stupid thing I ever would say for all the good it would have done me anyway I say ain’t nothing I can do so I wrote this song for you [chorus] There’s beauty in the breakdown when you can build it back again no there is no time to waste thinking about what might have been and they say do what you love and they say love what you do but don’t expect it to always come back it don't come back to you People on the street let me hear you say it’s alright, it's alright whatever it takes to make you feel that way it’s alright

If I could I would buy the moon and wrap it up for you in blue wrapping paper if I could I would catch the stars and hang them in your room in the form of a constellation so then maybe you you would be happy to sit inside your room with moon and the stars and me so tell it to me straight and don't hesitate would you ever consider loving a dreamer like me? so tell it to me straight and don't hesitate would you ever consider loving a dreamer like me? If I could I would write a book a story about you some intriguing adventure and if I could I would write myself a character or two to keep you safe from danger so them maybe we we would be happy never growing old in the pages of the best tale ever told so tell it to me straight and don't hesitate would you ever consider loving a dreamer like me? so tell it to me straight and don't hesitate would you ever consider loving a dreamer like me? Never let you fall I would never let you fall I would never let you fall If I could I'd give to you anything you want anything at all… so tell it to me straight and don't hesitate would you ever consider loving a dreamer like me? so tell it to me straight and don't hesitate would you ever consider loving a dreamer like me? I'll say it again don't want to pretend would you ever consider loving a dreamer like me?

now it's over and done for better or worse now we watch and adore as you take the floor like you rehearsed and now he is yours to have and to hold and that's what I get an ounce of regret for moving too slow and it's too early to leave but I don't wanna stay and my shoes are too tight and it doesn't feel right to dance anyway so I'll slip out the back door grab a smoke by the car and it's what I deserve for losing my nerve and letting things go this far 'cause you were made for better things you were made for better things you were made for better things for better things... well now I'd never tell you you made a mistake but you sure as hell did wanted his name and there's no one to blame so I'm driving away now instead and now the radio's cryin' and I'm tired of tryin' to make sense of where I fit in 'cause I've said it before you deserve so much more someone who'll treat you better than I did 'cause you were made for better things you were made for better things you were made for better things for better things...
