Left on 83

I needed help, I had to see
a different soul inside of me
I had to leave and be alone
and let my thoughts become my own
My days were long and I was tired
I couldn’t go another mile
I had to leave and go my way
I had to start right then – that day
So I turned left on 83 …..

I hadn’t packed, but I’d be fine
Had so much baggage on my mind
Had all these thoughts I had to lose
so I’d be left with only you
I felt that I was on the brink
I needed time to sit and think
I needed sky and needed trees
I needed time and needed peace
So I drove south on 83 ……

 

I drove and drove so many miles
and lost the frown and found my smile
Could hear the tires go round and round
and felt my life get turned around
As I drove south on 83 …..

Had so much baggage on my mind
I hadn’t packed but I was fine
And all those thoughts I had to lose
Well, now they’re gone and there’s just you
You know those thoughts I had to lose …..

Well, now they’re gone …..and there’s just you ……

 

Yes, now they’re gone …..
And there’s just you …….
