Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive,
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive.
In 69, I was 21 and I called the road my own.
I don't know where this road turned into the one I'm on.

[C]If I can get you to smile bef[D]ore I leave. [C] [G/B] [Am] [G] [Em] [D]
Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels.
I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels.
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to that pulled me through.
Looking into their eyes, I see they're running, too.
[C/G] Honey, you really tempt me,[G] the way you look so kind. [C/G] [C/G] [G]
[C]I wanna know who you are but I'm runn[D]ing behind. [C] [G/B] [Am] [G] [Em] [D]
A[C]nd I don't even know what [D]I'm hoping to find. [C] [G/B] [Am] [G] [Em] [D]
R[C]unning into the sun, but r[D]unning behind. [C] [G/B] [Am] [G]
