Killin’ Me

thousand headlights
from Tennessee
eyes on the road
but it ain’t what I see
and it looks
like it takes more than miles
to get free

I don’t know why
it keeps on killin me

after all of this time

I know
highway signs telling me I’m moving on
and I know
I could drive for days and still ain’t gone
and I know
what they call this road that I’m on

but I don’t know why
it keeps on killin me

after all of this time

hey there you better get off here
I can see you’re all alone
you know if you lived right here
you’d be almost home

and behind every headlight’s a world of pain like me
who would do anything in this world to get free

and I don’t know why
it keeps on killin me

after all of this time
