Floorboard's filled with baby toys
An' empty coke bottles an' coffee cups
Drivin' through the rain with no radio
Tryin' not to wake her up

Cell phone says, "Low battery"
God, what if I break down?
I'm just lookin' for an exit with a lotta lights
A safe little interstate town

Just a cheap hotel
With a single bed
And cable TV
Is good enough for me an' Emily

Some day, when she's old enough
She's gonna start askin' questions about him
Some kid at school brings his dad for show an' tell
An' gets her little mind a wonderin'

"Where's my daddy? Do I have one?
Does he not love me like you do?"
Oh, maybe I'll find someone to love the both of us now
An' I'll tell her when she's old enough to know the truth

Will it break her heart?
Will she understand
That I had to leave?
That's what was best for me an' Emily

That house was never clean enough, his dinner never warm enough
Nothing I did was ever good enough to make him happy
So, I guess, he gave me what he thought I deserved
But it would kill me if he ever raised his hand to her

Big rigs are throwin' rain on my windshield now
An' I feel like they're laughin' at me
Finally the storm is lettin' up
An' the mornin' is breakin' free

It's a brand new day
It's a second chance
Yesterday is just a memory
For me an' Emily

Floorboard is filled with baby toys
An' empty coke bottles an' coffee cups
Least there's one good thing that he gave me
An' she's startin' to wake up
