Packed my bags, cashed my check.
Leave this town, done with this shit.
Said goodbye to the few that I love,
Hit the road, followed the sun.
Headed out west, to rebuild my life.
But wherever I went, I was followed by strife.
Things I missed, memories of the past,
No escape, the sadness lasts.
The highway keeps going, on into the night.
The sound of the engine, rumbles in delight.
But somewhere on that dark, desert road,
I had to stop, my mind on overload.
I stepped out and looked above,
Infinite stars burning their love.
Maybe they were pointing the way,
For me to go on this lost highway.
