On a two lane road through the mountains
I am taking the corners too fast
My head is spinning as fast as my wheels
Shifting from future to past
So many things to attend to
So many places to be
The mountains roll right past my window
Like a half-watched bar room TV

If I could die just for a moment
Let these worries work themselves out
If it would all go on without me
Tell me what's all this worry about?
A promise is not like a moment
A moment's not something you keep
I've made too many promises lately
And the woods are lovely, dark and deep

I remember this friend down in Florida
She used to get lost just for fun
She'd take any turn that presented itself
Just to see where the road might run
It's amazing the places they'd take her
The people and things that she'd find
I've been meaning to look her up again
But I can't seem to find the time

Trying to make all the ends meet
It's like I'm skating the edge of a knife
I'm so busy making a living
I've got no time for a life

If I could die just for a moment
Let these worries work themselves out
If it would all go on without me
Tell me what's all this worry about?
A promise is not like a moment
A moment's not something you keep
I've made too many promises lately
And the woods are lovely, dark and deep
