The Wind

lyrics

What if the wind doesn't take you where you want to go
And the earth continues to turn
While the weight of getting older still falls on your shoulders
And the kindling of your dreams just won't burn

When what you want and what you have don't align
And what you actually need ain't so easy to find
Will you pick yourself up and hop back in your truck
And keep moving forward, leaving it all behind

A little too much of the good stuff and I'm thinkin' 'bout
All the ways that these thoughts can bring me down
What will you do, what will you do when the bad times come around

When you're overwhelmed and feel unimpressive
When you start to buckle at the knees
Will you light yourself a cigarette and try to forget
That you've got these lonesome feelings inside

What if I told you that we're one and the same
That I don't know what to do and I'm not ashamed
That I'm talking to myself and I'm not ashamed

A little too much of the good stuff and I'm thinkin' 'bout
All the ways that these thoughts can bring me down
What will you do, what will you do when the bad times come around

When it's all over, I'll have no more questions
I'll have learned all my lessons
And I'm glad the wind took me where it wanted me to go
