lyrics

you tried to hold my gaze
but I just looked away
watched a hail mary pass on the screen
it's the first day of the new year
it's the perfect day to finally say what I mean

and man that quarterback’s off to a great start
he’s a hero now, he’s won the nation’s heart
and I wish I had a throwing arm, I wish I had better aim
I wish I could convince you to stay in the game

but Hail Mary, Mother of God
I’m hitting the road, could you come along?
I've been writing love letters out on the blacktop
and later on I can barely read what I wrote
and I could use a copilot
maybe you could help me take notes

so I turned off my brain, I turned off my heart
I turned off the porch light and I turned off the stars
I packed a suitcase of regret to take with me
I closed the front door, threw it into the backseat
I keep my eye on them in the rearview
they’re always there to see me through

but Hail Mary, Mother of God
I’m hitting the road, could you come along?
I've been writing love letters out on the blacktop
and later on I can barely read what I wrote
and I could use a copilot
maybe you could help me take note

I turn off my car back in the drive
I’m kind of lucky I made it home alive
not sure how much of this I’ve got left
but I know that I can’t do it by myself
