about

I've spent the last five years running from town to town, refuse to make my mind up.
Finally I decided to take a chance and be the one to hold on a little harder.
But you know me, you've seen the songs I sing.
And they don't make the light last any longer.
I've got this funny feeling I'll be walking back alone. I will not be your stepping stone.

It's midnight at the airport and none of this is real, even my dreams are dreamed on borrowed time these days.
And somewhere not so deep inside, I know this is a finite ride.
The ones I find worth fighting for, I'll fight with all my life.
So take me to the station and put me on a Greyhound.
Filled up with expectations, I have got no backup plan.
I've got this funny feeling I'll be walking back alone. I will not be your stepping stone.

Now when you say you miss me, you and I, we both know you're just being polite.
In all the words you wrote me and in all the songs you showed me, the California desert sky. Thank you for the entertaining time.
Take me to the airport, and put me on that plane.
I've got this funny feeling I'll be walking back alone. I will not be your stepping stone.

And the wine-light of the western sky is lit to go, like dynamite.
Reminds me of the way I feel tonight.
And I'm just trying to sit still, my head has yet to foot the bill.
I emptied and rebuilt myself, you've sewn some sense into my chest.
Meet me in your southern home just long enough to let me know
that we've been down this road before.
I've got this funny feeling I'll be walking back alone. I will not be your stepping stone.

And I like strangers, true indeed, but I'd still prefer your company, so maybe five years down the road, we'll both look up from where we've blown.
I've got this funny feeling I'll be walking back alone. I will not be your stepping stone. I will not be your stepping stone.
