Lyrics

Me and this lonesome highway became fast friends
Driving away last night I confessed to what I did
And how I'd live to regret it and how leaving still somehow seemed right.

I road off like a coward while she lay there so softly
The moonlight blessing her face. Someday I'll answer
The questions that'll haunt me but today I'm just running away.

I forgot how to laugh
I forgot how to cry
I forgot how to let her inside
I forgot how to feel
I forgot how to try
And that's why I forgot to say goodbye.
That's why I forgot to say goodbye.

4 cups of coffee at that roadside diner
Should keep me speeding all day, but my caffeine minds races
Crashes and burns and I pull over to the wayside and I pray!

(CHORUS)

So I'm making my way back to Crested Butte, Colorado
The Elk Mountains are a fine place to hide
The Cutthroats and the Rainbows up the Slate river valley
Don't judge me or claim to care why. Oh why!


I forgot how to laugh
I forgot how to cry
I forgot how to let her inside
I forgot how to feel
I forgot how to try
And that's why I forgot to say goodbye.
That's why! That's why!
