All signs pointing west,
I leave with nothing
I'd have settled for less,
with a little luck
You know I'll be on my way today

I'm a little tired
A little lost
I am holding out, baby
At all cost
With a little luck
You know I'll be on my way today

I am looking over my shoulder,
at the Green Mountains
biting at my heels,
with my sights set on the ocean
my hands holding firmly onto the wheel

So long, Melissa
I've heard every word you said

I'm taken
by these roses
this streetlight
is turning white to blue,
with a little luck
I will start again anew

This long and lonesome highway
has left my empty
as this station now,
with a little luck
I will find a way somehow

So long, Melissa
I heard every word you said
So far, oh Melissa
you were wrong
I have gone for good
