lyrics

Backseat
I wanted to take you to the top of the mountain
I was afraid to catch cold
It wasn’t fair to make those promises
wrong to give you false hope

I thought we’d find the summit together
I didn’t plan for such stormy weather
I though I would overcome my fear
but I just drove in circles all damn year

and I forgot about you in the backseat1
I didn’t mean to leave you out
Or to make you feel small
And it would hurt me to think you thought
I didn’t care at all

I thought we’d find the summit together
I didn’t plan for such stormy weather
I though I would overcome my fear
But I just drove in circles all damn year

and I forgot about you in the backseat

Afraid of the future
Stuck in the past
My head’s in the clouds
This worry can’t last
And good enough for right now
Isn’t good enough for me

and I forgot about you in the backseat

I can’t believe I let this go
On for so long
While part of me tried, part of me tried
To pretend that nothing was wrong

Rear view
Mirror view
Waiting for you
to catch up to me

and I forgot about you in the backseat
