Tailwind

All I remember is a whole lot of nothing
Where did my twenties just go
Same thing each morning, same sleepless evenings
Finally I learn to say no

I shouldn’t be driving but I’m in third gear
Saw the welcome sign in the rear view mirror
God I hope I get out of here
Make the tailwind strong and the highway clear

I stop for fuel as the sun goes down
With 15 dollars or so
The attendant asks me how much I want
I say more than you’ll ever know

I shouldn’t be driving but I’m in fourth gear
Saw the welcome sign in the rear view mirror
God I hope I get out of here
Make the tailwind strong and the highway clear

Oh the wipers are waving they’re waving goodbye
As I’m heading into the rest of my life
I’m learning to do a whole lot more than drive
Goodbye, goodbye

Let me remember always the good
And not be bitter with time
ëCause I could sure use a happy ending
As I approach the state line

I shouldn’t be driving but I’m in fifth gear
Saw the welcome sign in the rear view mirror
God I hope I get out of here
Make the tailwind strong and the highway clear

I shouldn’t be driving but I’m in top gear
Saw the welcome sign in the rear view mirror
God I hope I get out of here
Make the tailwind strong and the highway clear

Oh God I hope I get out of here
Make the tailwind strong and the highway clear
