lyrics

I wish I didn’t know
Where you really go
(I) pretend you left a note
Lipstick and perfume makes it glow

You said it was the first time
Let it be the last
I know nothing is forever
Just didn’t think it’d end so fast
And I thought maybe West Virginia
Could be our promised land
Cross the Ohio into Canaan
But nothing ever goes to plan

Now I’m waiting by the phone
Whisky burning on my tongue
One more drink and you’ll be gone
I guess this means we’re moving on

Moving on until the next time
Always living for the past
Maybe everything’s forever
We the live the roles that we’ve been cast
But we thought maybe West Virginia
Would be the promised land
Cross the Ohio into Canaan
But nothing ever goes to plan

The promise was broken
On the day it was made
By the glimmer of hope that
We might really change
Thought maybe a fresh start
Would let us be remade
Then we got to the mountains
And it was all the same

Just the same as it was last time
Always begging for a king
Tell me it would make a difference
And I’d give you a ring
And then maybe West Virginia
Would be the promised land
Cross the Ohio into Canaan
Pretend to change as if we can
