Lyrics

She set off on a mission back to Carbon,

Pointed that old truck straight back home.

She said, I just might be ok to make it on the road,

But I’m not gonna make it on my own.

 

The road is long, she rambled on to change the scenery,

 And justify the same old fears.

Like everyone she’d love to meet, who’d come, and go, so easily,

And she says, hey I’m still here.

 

So please don’t leave,

Just tell me that you love me,

And I promise I’ll believe you.

And please don’t go,

Cause I need someone to hold me,

She said, baby you don’t know me,

I’m not like you. I’m only passing through.

 

And its la, de, da, de, da,

If there’s something that you want.

She’ll take nothing if you don’t.

She said do, do, do, do, do

Just take me if you want me.

I’ll go anywhere with you.

 

Chorus

 

She set off on a mission back to Carbon,

Pointed that old truck straight back home.
