Well here we are again, same old bar stool
I'm looking at the clock like, "Man, where are you?"
Maybe you ran out of gas, maybe you picked up a shift
Maybe you're just running late, ah yea that must be it

I don't know why you ain't answering my calls
I don't know why but I think it's all my fault
I'm just tryna make sense of it all
But some things don't make sense at all, damn

They say it's darkest before the dawn
They say no one's ever really gone
They tell me that I gotta stay strong
But right now I'm just missing my friend

I know heaven is a place on earth
We're all going, you just got there first
Between the pines, 'round that old creek bend
Wait for me where the backroad ends
Where the backroad ends
Can't wait to see you again
Where the backroad ends

Some night I drive around the city all alone
And I stop by your house, see if you're momma's home
She asks me to stay for dinner, we sit down and talk about ya
We go through old photographs and laugh, man, it's hard without ya

Remember where we used to park
And stay out 'til way after dark
Away from the noise and under the stars
I like to think that's where you are

They say it's darkest before the dawn
They say no one's ever really gone
They tell me that I gotta stay strong
But right now I'm just missing my friend

I know heaven is a place on earth
We're all going, you just got there first
Between the pines, 'round that old creek bend
Wait for me where the backroad ends
Where the backroad ends
Can't wait to see you again
Where the backroad ends

I'll tell ya Strawberry Wine came on the radio last night and man, I cried
Thought about all the times we had together
You always think they're gonna last forever, damn

They say it's darkest before the dawn
They say no one's ever really gone
They tell me that I gotta stay strong
But right now I'm just missing my friend

I know heaven is a place on earth
We're all going, you just got there first
Between the pines, 'round that old creek bend
Wait for me where the backroad ends
Where the backroad ends
Can't wait to see you again
Where the backroad ends

I hope you got a smile on your face
And your heart's at peace, amen
Where the backroad ends
