Lyrics

STATE LINE 1. She had always known that all she owned worth keeping Could be packed in a couple of bags as they were leaving By the time they were out of arm’s reach, the baby was sleepin’ And the sun wouldn’t rise until they’d crossed the state line 2. Still she made sure to keep her sunglasses on while drivin’ In case the Highway Patrol were out in full force this mornin’ Cause if anyone saw the black eye those glasses were hidin’ They’d take all the power she’d spent so damn long to find (CHORUS). And she quietly sang every song she knew so her baby would not have to wake up to The sound of Mama crying one more time And she whispered a thank you right from the heart, if it wasn’t for her she would’ve fallen apart And stayed on the receiving end for as long as she could stay alive 3. From now on the woman she had been would stop existing A P.O. box in a new name, ‘n somehow make a living By the time people she barely knew might report them missing They’d be too far gone to ever be found again (CHORUS REPEAT): And she quietly sang every song she knew so her baby would not have to wake up to The sound of Mama crying one more time And she whispered a thank you right from the heart, if it wasn’t for her she would’ve fallen apart And stayed on the receiving end for as long as she could stay alive (TAG): She had to believe that it was a sign The beautiful sunrise as they crossed the state line Ooooh oooh oooh, a-ha…… Copyright © 2005 Ann-Marita Garsed.
