The Lyrics

This song is about a young man driving to his grandmother's house in Denville, New Jersey. (In real life, my grandmother on Mom's side lives in Denville). I just felt it would be inspirational for him to turn to Grandma, who has always been his biggest fan.
On a Garden State highway through a night alone
I was barely breathing, I was crawling home
It's not quite Philly, or the south of France
Or an Asian island or a second chance
Going back to Denville, thinking about the whole thing
Guess you've got to run sometime
Maybe I'm a fast train rolling down a mountain
Watching all my life go by
You're a distant memory, a Route 80 exit sign
I was talking crazy on the driver's side
And I know I hurt you but I can't confess
Whether it's blood or a wine stain, I'm not impressed
Going back to Denville, thinking about the whole thing
What's the use in wondering why?
On Route 80 I'm like a storm front, tearing up Morris County
It's just one night in mid-July
And it's safe and warm where nothing ever happens
Would it be so hard to realign a star or two?
Change a Jersey night for you
Well it's not evening and it's not quite New York
There's a scar in the blue sky by Morristown Airport
And I'm talking crazy on the driver's side
Now I'm just heading to Grandma's, following the signs
(Narrator: Whew! If I can get over the tracks, then I'm good).
