My dead reckoning must be off, just a notch or two
Shouldn't I have arrived by now
I swear it's deja vu
Semis passing me on the right, on the left a steep ravine
Buckets of rain falling down
Coming to wash me clean

Splash back like a heart attack
As it hits against the glass
Tough luck like a Mack Truck
Jack-knifed on the pass
Floodgates when the dam breaks
I get swept away
No doubt I've got to get out
The longer that I stay
I gotta keep on driving
Keep on driving

I've seen this road, I know where it goes; the signs read 'dead-end'
I'm taking a turn towards something good,
Around the next bend
I fell hard for you, to my soul; maybe you just wanted to kiss me
I'll put miles between us to soften the blow
Go on ahead and miss me

Splash back like a heart attack
As it hits against the glass
Tough luck like a Mack Truck
Jack-knifed on the pass
Floodgates when the dam breaks
I get swept away
No doubt I've got to get out
The longer that I stay

If I'm skimming--I'm not sinking
If I'm dreaming--I'm not thinking
If I'm down the road--There are no ties to sever
Just a patch of stormy weather left behind me

Splash back like a heart attack
As it hits against the glass
Tough luck like a Mack Truck
Jack-knifed on the pass
Floodgates when the dam breaks
I get swept away
No doubt I've got to get out
The longer that I stay
I gotta keep on driving
Keep on driving
Keep on driving
