Open Road

Always lived on the other side, that's how I lived my life.
Like a bird flies against the wind, freedom comes with it's own price.
Days get hard when the money's low, might be saved by the next show.
With a song and my old guitar, might be time to hit the road.

So I'm running down, rolling down, running down that open road.

Then there's love and sweet romance, never lived long with me.
When you're chasin' just one more dream, hard to fill the others needs.
Late at night I have my doubts, is this price too much to pay?
I search my soul for my belief, make it through another day.

Running down, rolling down, running down that open road.

I play the game, through sun and rain.
Sometimes it's hard to just be me.
You never know when it's time to go.
So go ahead and grab that dream.

In this life we all get the choice, of which road we'll travel down.
One that's safe with security, one that's filled with mystery.
It's too damn hard just to trade your soul, for the promises they give.
It's too damn sad to find yourself grown old, and never really took the time to live.

We're all running down, rolling down, running down that open road.
