Tell me where to go
I'm running out of lines and I'm running out coast
You're just too damn slow
You drunk drove and forgot which way is home

Yes and now I know
I heard it on the phone but I'd known it all along
But we won't acknowledge this we'll just play along
We're actors in a play, characters in a song

And you, you play your part still
Even though you know you're hidden from view
And it's all eyes on you
The people came to watch you choose

Who's it going to be?
Is it him or is it me?
You know what? Forget it, I don't want to know
I headed out the door

And I picked up my keys
I opened the car but I fell to my knees
Was it the alcohol or something more?
I'll sleep on the floor

When I awoke, I drove off
And I thought about what I wanted the most
I went in search for The Great White Coast
