Well I guess I feel the need to confess
about all the things that lead to my emptiness
It just gets so hard to hang it in the air
When you look so pretty standing there
I might not be content it’s true
But that’s got nothing to do with you
It just that when the road starts calling
All of my resolve starts falling
I’ve got a song in my heart, it was written on the road
I’ve got a feeling I can’t shake and I can’t unload
It’s not that it’s right and it’s not that it’s wrong
It’s just so hard to day I had to put it in a song

All I really want is wheels
Someone on the slide and someone on the steel
Someone to hold the bottom down
And a long white line leading out of town
It’s not that I don’t want to hang around
And it ain’t that I don’t like this town
It’s just that when the sun breaks over those hills
All I really want is wheels

I’ve always had a problem sitting still
I don’t know what I’m looking for
And maybe never will
Every time I see a car with out of state plates
My mind starts running like an old V-8
I want dust on the windshield
And rubber on the road
Every time I think about it I want to explode
I want climb behind the wheel
Let the windows down
Put the pedal to the metal and blow this town
Put my guitar in the back and let these wheels ride
But it’s never fast enough, I’m never satisfied
Three on the tree or four or the floor
I don’t give a damn I just want one gear more
