lyrics

Driving down this empty road
Fast as this old Ford can go, but it's too slow
Tear are falling just like rain.
Rain is falling hard again

CHORUS:
I'm starting to see just how it's gonna be
I may outrun the memory of you
But I can't outrun my heart

What is running round my head
Are all the things I should have said, instead
I'm strangling this steering wheel
Trying to fight the pain I feel

CHORUS:
I'm starting to see just how it's gonna be
I may outrun the memory of you
But I can't outrun my heart

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

White lines ahead begin to blur
I know sleep won't be easier, with dreams of her
Sunrise isn't far away
But it only means another day alone

CHORUS:
I'm starting to see just how it's gonna be
I may outrun the memory of you
But I can't outrun my heart
