Road Lover

You're caught
    in my eyes
Can't get away
your heart goes thump
Just a small push
And you think
    you'll jump
I would
Something inside says
    I should not
So I won't
I'll just leave
    And get up and go

I like the road
It gets me there
And it gets me out of here
It's a long road
With a tall sky
Lots of questions
Makes you wonder why
You never know
Till you get there
It's a long way to find out

My hearts glued to the floor board babe
It gets squashed between my foot and the pedal
Pushed against the metal
I'm not really going anywhere
But I just got to get there
Have a home
But I don't want to be there
when I'm home
Don't want to leave there

There's a woman who understands this
Don't know how she does that
I can't even explain it
But as she looks me in the eye
She tells me why

Someday - I'll reach the end
    and she knows it
And she's waiting for me
    to get there
