INDIANA

This old town wasn’t much before the war/before the fight/before the loss/so surrender didn’t feel so out of place/The flag waved white/the firing stopped/This old town wasn’t hard to leave behind/with nothing left/to hold onto/but I can’t help this rising feeling in my chest/that I lost myself when/I lost you/Cuz I didn’t mean to leave in such a rush/I didn’t know if this old town would be enough/The road is even longer than it looked when I began/I didn’t know that it led back to Indiana/The snow is even colder when it falls upon what used to be mine/but that’s okay/yeah that’s alright/cuz Indiana knows we’re running out of time/My old man looked directly in my eyes/It hurt like hell/it hurt like war/He told me, “don’t you dare remember us like this/cuz I lost myself/when I lost her”/and we watched her gently sleeping on the bed/and as quiet as he could my old man said/”The road is even longer than it looked when I began/I didn’t know that it led back to Indiana/The snow is even colder when it falls upon what used to be mine/but that’s okay/yeah that’s alright/cuz Indiana knows we’re running out of time”/This old town feels older than before/with every house/a different war/but I don’t mind losing battles anymore/cuz I lost myself/when I found her/She’s the one who told me it’s okay/to cry and to believe it when I say/The road is even longer than it looked when I began/I didn’t know that it led back to Indiana/The snow is even colder when it falls upon what used to be mine/but that’s okay/The road is even longer than it looked when I began/I didn’t know that it led back to Indiana/The snow is even colder when it falls upon what used to be mine/but that’s okay/yeah that’s alright/cuz Indiana knows/yeah that’s okay/and that’s alright/cuz Indiana knows/Indiana knows we’re running out of time
