Lyrics

Automatic Pilot

I caught you looking over your shoulder,
As I was lookin’ over mine.
You probably thought “He’s looking older”,
But I thought “She’s looking fine!”
You brought it all back
The way things used to be,
I really did lose track
Of just how much you mean to me.

The way the days of life go by
Automatic pilot is the only way to fly.
Get up and go to work, come home, eat and go to sleep,
Sometimes I feel like such a jerk.
And yes, I realize I’ve got no reason to complain,
It’s all a compromise,
And there is nothing to explain.

Then there are other days, just like today,
And I see you on the street,
We stop and say “Hello” then ramble on,
But I am lighter on my feet.
So let the river flow,
Just enjoy the ride,
However far you go,
Everything will be alright.
