  • Lyrics: The Rearview Verse 1: On a lonely stretch of highway Headed up the coast Thought I saw a cruel reflection-it was you in my rear view I was runnin from a ghost Pre-Chorus: Just like old Pavlov’s dog baby You know every time I hear that song I remember everything Chorus: I’ve been drivin I’ve been cryin Cant seem to think about Nothin else but you girl Feel like I’m dyin inside I keep hopin I keep prayin But the radio just keeps right on playin That same old song, the one that you used to love so much I’ve tried so hard but I cant forget you I’m always livin in the rear view Verse 2: 9 a.m. in Mendocino I came rollin to a stop I heard a Baptist choir, swear it was callin out my name From a little white, wooden church sittin halfway up the block Pre-chorus: But when I opened up that door baby And started hummin right along with the melody I remembered everything Chorus: I’ve been drivin I’ve been cryin Cant seem to think about Nothin else but you girl Feel like I’m dyin inside I keep hopin I keep prayin But the radio just keeps right on playin That same old song, the one that you used to love so much I’ve tried so hard but I cant forget you I’m always livin in the rear view Bridge: Is that a detour up ahead? Or am I only getting worse Cant seem to navigate when I got it locked in reverse Chorus (D): I’ve been drivin I’ve been cryin Cant seem to think about Nothin else but you girl Feel like I’m dyin inside I keep hopin I keep prayin But the radio just keeps right on playin That same old song, the one that you used to love so much I’ve tried like hell but I cant forget you I’ve tried so hard but I cant forget you I’ve tried so hard to forget you But I cant stop lookin in the rear view © 2008 Donovan Plant
