Rainy Days And License Plates

This song is by Backseat Goodbye and appears on the album Nightmares Are for Dreamers (2006).

I'm looking for rainy days and license plates
Forget me nots and coastal states
Seven dollars and a cough
Is all I've got
To my name that I don't know
'Cause no one's told me in a year or so
That the days are worth living
Might as well give it all you've got
Or just give up
Someone said that boy you gotta run
You can't look back there is no sun
It's only a flashlight in the sky
Someone's held it up and it turned big
And no one really knows what it is
Or how to explain it
Keep it simple
Keep it nice
Keep it lovely
Please stay bright
When it comes to brilliant
You're the only one that comes to mind
I've tried my best to leave this place
But I always end up just the same
On a Sunday in the middle of another morning's fade
And the nights they're not so good
When your only friends that understood
Are in the middle of a state
That's too far to drive
You try your best to see it a different way
Well at least I'm still alive
But life it's a word
And me I'm just no good
Without my guitar and voice to sing your praise
Like how the midnight needs the moonlight
And skyline needs the sun to light the days
I'm hoping for simple songs and melodies
It's ten past two and the swaying trees
Just remind me of those highways headed home
To the clarksville skyline
And the air it's just as fine
As it is here in indiana
But the streetsigns just ain't the same
And not as many people know my name
