Musicians have a habit of making infidelity really easy. I’ve watched great bands and great relationships end because of it. This song is about one of those experiences. About how you want to sort of gently shake that friend, throw him in the van, and get him to the next town before he does something that a lot of people will end up regretting.


Long face the highways cold and it's
Okay tonight you're coming home home home
Long face for all the good it brings
Hold tight to all those little things gone gone
Long face she's holding on

Load up those cases amps and sinners
Don't stop for broken hearted figures
Go home alone

Long face you're taken back and it's
Too late for crossing bridges burned burned burned
Long face you're wavering

Long face you're coming back around
Always. You're coming home and she's gone gone
