From the recording Natalie Gelman
The Rest of the Way
Music and Lyrics by Natalie Gelman & Allan Douglas
Good morning sunshine,
She makes her way out the door.
Maybe today she’ll find what she is looking for.
There’s no rules, no right way to say,
Thanks but no thanks, hello and goodbye,
This is not what she had in mind.
This life is enough ‘til tonight,
The days will carry their own weight
All she needs is half a tank
Her lies will take her the rest of the way
She sits back, tells herself,
Just this one last time.
Never good at leaving notes, never one to say goodbye.
Is it such a mystery that she’s all alone
So toss your hair and drop a line,
Do what you must to get by.
