Interstate Love Song Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Waitin’ on a Sunday afternoon
For what I’ve read between the lines
Your lies
Feelin’ like a hand in rusted shame
So do you laugh or does it cry?
Reply?

[Chorus]

Leavin’ on a southern train
Only yesterday you lied
Promises of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time go by
All of these things you said to me

[Verse 2]

Breathin’ is the hardest thing to do
With all I’ve said and all that’s dead for you
You lied, goodbye

[Chorus]

Leavin’ on a southern train
Only yesterday you lied
Promises of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time go by
All of these things I said to you
