lyrics

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
