Mile 102
Words & Music by Mike Maimone
(c) 2007

I think I know you,
I know I've seen your face...
The rest stop at mile 102
behind the coffee shop sandwich case.
You said you only drink it black;
I kinda like your taste.

Woke up from a 90-mile-an-hour nap happy to be alive
One more cup of coffee should get me through the rest of the drive
I know it's been a couple days, and we're about 1,000 miles away
But maybe one day I'll get back to mile 102 to hear you say
"Do you want anything else with your coffee?
Try a slice of meaning in your life."
I said, "Now there's a strange suggestion,
but somehow girl I think you've pegged me just right."

And I need you around, I'm losing higher ground, I'm losing higher ground.
And I don't want to come down, but I'm losing higher ground, I'm losing higher ground.

Woke up from a 17-year nap to realize that I'm alive.
Never thought a stranger would be the one to wake me up inside.
But girl you poured a wiser cup of coffee
and since I left I'm haunted by your eyes
Now we're back, we're back to being strangers
But if I had you here with me I know I just might get it right

And I need you around, I'm losing higher ground, I'm losing higher ground.
And I don't want to come down, but I'm losing higher ground, I'm losing higher ground.
