Last Exit to Surrey - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Where there's a will there's a way my father used to say
and I suppose that's what he told himself when she
slammed the door told him not to show his face again
And I couldn't really tell you much about him, it's all hearsay
I heard he fixed fancy cars, liked to drink the pain away
and a bunch of words can't tell you nothing
it's like drawing a stickman to describe humanity
And the sign on the highway says last exit to Surrey
and the sign, the sign on the highway says last exit to Surrey
And the last time I saw him I was just a girl of six
he'd been two years in the hospital, his liver too far gone to fix
and when my mom said give your daddy a kiss good-bye
I didn't have a clue I'd be losing him forever that night
And the sign on the highway says last exit to Surrey
and the sign, the sign on the highway says last exit to Surrey
And a hospital's too much like a prison just no bars on the windows
and there's no drink to take the pain away
so he checked out, picked up a bottle of rye
and checked in to a motel in Surrey BC
And just across the mighty Fraser river in a motel in Surrey BC
he took his last drink, his last breath, he lost his will to find a way
he lost his will to find a way
There's a sign on the highway when I'm headed home
It says last exit to Surrey
and it's all I can do when I hit my pain not to go that way not to drive that way
it's all I can do when I hit my pain not to go that way not to drive that way
it's all I can do when I hit my pain not to go that way not to drive that way
not to go that way, not to drive that way
God knows how... I'll find, find my way
God knows how... I'll find, find my way
