I live in my own world on 18 wheels
Playing music and writing songs about the way I feel
Tonight I'll play my guitar for you
I'll pour my heart out and tonight it's blue
So gather round and watch me play
I'm putting my misery on display

I was raised with the West Coast bands
I dont change for anyone I stay the way I am
I dont do this for fame, I do this for me
It soothes my soul and keeps my sanity
I'll only be here for today
Putting my misery on display

And this road it's so cold
And at times it feels so long
But I just keep moving on and singing you my songs
'Cause I dont know any other way
Putting my misery on display

Tonight I wish someone would hold me
A woman's touch and put my mind at ease
Her lips, her breaath up against my skin
Spread her wingsa nd take my body in
I'll be gone by the break of day
Putting my misery on display

And this road gest so cold
And at times it feels so long
But I just keep moving on and singing you my songs
'Cause I dont know any other way
Than putting my misery on display

I dont know any other way
Than putting my misery on display

    General CommentSince Allan's wife died, all of his songs (with a few exceptions) have been about two people in love, either meeting, divorcing, or somewhere in between. This song is about him, his misery for his lost wife fuels his music and people love it.
