Running a little late, and the tank's a little low
But I'm not in a hurry, I'm just singing to the radio

Cars move all around me, stepping up the pace
And I cruise down the slow lane, lost in my own space
And I can drive for miles and never see what's all around me

I'll take a drive on the back roads, so I can take some time to think things through
Put some miles between myself and all these things I've got to do
Look for signs and try to see what they say to me

It's just like me to miss the road despite all the signs along the way
Is it poor navigation or just lack of attention that's to blame
My head's too far up in the clouds my sister used to say
Some things never change I guess I'll always be that way
Cause I can drive for miles and never know if I'm on the wrong road

And when you're at that fork the stats would say half the time you'll go the right way
But I can't seem to meet those odds, even on my best of days
But maybe I'm just wasting time looking for some dotted line
I've heard it said that there is more than one right way to go sometimes
And maybe I'll decide today
The road I'm on is OK
