The Milk Carton Kids - Des Moines, IA

Song Rating: 9.65/10

Song lyrics:

The road does funny things inside a man
To hurt in ways I just dont understand
My heart can see the road that leads back home
Im afraid that I cant get there any more.

I wish that you could see into my eyes
To see what makes me race, and makes me cry
I have faith inside this broken, tethered heart
Whatever role I play is the right part.

The sunshine in Des Moines can fade so fast
The love you never meant to let slip past
Minneapolis could take me home,
But home aint where Im headed for.



My sorrow makes a face, the way I hurt
A longing for, betrayed by what Im sure
Her sounds in words that push and pull you still
But hardened by the thought of what you will.

Soon Ill find the places that I know
Faced by what should find me on this road,
My heart still sees the path that leads back home
But I think shes gone, I think Im all alone.

The sunshine in Des Moines can fade so fast
The love you never meant to let slip past
Minneapolis could take me home,
But home aint where Im headed for.

Home aint where Im headed for.
