I knew I'd see her around
I'd be at some party
She'd show up and I'd be walking out
Or across some parking lot
Hiding behind her sister
I'd look up and
She'd be at the red light beside me
In that white Maxima with the sticker on the back
I'd act like I didn't see her
But we pay at the same pumps
Flip through the same stations
Slow down for the same curves
Run around with the same crowds
We just needed some time
She could get on with her life
And I'd get on with mine
Thought I would be fine
But maybe not
I knew she'd find a way to get over me
But I never thought

That she would get down
With somebody I know
I guess that's just how it goes
When you break up in a small town
I see our friends
And the put on a show
Like they don't want me to know
So they give me the go around
But there's only so many streets
So many lights
I swear it's like I
Can't even leave my house
I should have known all along
You gotta move or move on
When you break up in a small town

For a while I guess they were keeping it low key
But now it's like these county lines
Closing in on me
I see ‘em everywhere together
And it's hitting a little too close to home
She's so far gone
She didn't go far
She was over me before the grass grew back
Where she used to park her car
She's leaving those same marks
In someone else's yard
Someone else's arms
Right down the road
And I never thought

(Repeat Chorus)

Her mailbox is 7 minutes from mine
And I drive into town sometimes and I see you sitting there with him
And I want to jump out and I want to fight
I want to say **** that guy but I can’t, it’s my fault
I let her go and I never thought

(Repeat Chorus)
