It'll Go Away

The check engine light came on in my pick up truck

I took a piece of black tape and covered it up

I knew there was a problem underneath the hood

But I just kept on driving a little faster than I should

Told myself it would be okay

Ignore it it'll go away

As you might expect a few miles down the road

My nothing's really wrong here went up in smoke

Kinda like the morning you said we need to talk

I pretended to be listening when I was blowing it off

Didn't hear a thing you had to say

Ignore it it'll go away

The problem wasn't that there was a problem

The problem was the choices that I made

Why did I choose not to notice

What was right in front of my face

I'd like to say I'm sorry but it's a little late for that

You've gone on with your life I'm glad I really am

I don't know why it took me so long to realize

And I don't know what else to say except that

I've learned my lesson one true love too late

Ignore it it'll go away
