Closer than they appear

Rolling down the road
Like many days before
Never seeing past the cardboard signs
Everyday I see them as I pass them by
Wondering what made today any different than every yesterday before

She was only 3 feet tall, barely
An image in my side view mirror
Yet my rear view mirror made her 10 feet tall
Drove down around the corner
Just a second more and I wouldn’t seen her at all
mmm mmm just image in my side view mirror
Yet my rear view mirror made her 10 feet tall

So with a u-turn and a heavy heart
Put my gear in park
Wishing my few dollars could steel her from the cold dark skies
Tears filled my eyes I could barely see to drive

Cause Rolling down the road

So with a u-turn and a heavy heart
Put my gear in park
Wishing my few dollars could steel her from the cold dark skies
Tears filled my eyes I could nearly see to drive
