Lookin' down that highway far as I can see
Where I left so much of me
It's gone, gone, gone
It's how it has to be

Went in the ditch goin' 95
I can't believe that I walked away alive
I was going too fast
In the breakdown lane

I may be walkin', I may be walkin'
I'll get there just the same

The woman I love, she never let me down
Never said that my dream could not be found
I had to burn before I could learn

She let me go, she let me go
She let me return

This is the place where I was meant to be
Movin' on with you next to me
And when that highway comes to a 't'
Either way is a mystery

Lookin' down that highway far as I can see
Where I left so much of me
It's gone, gone, gone
It's how it has to be
