Spending time on a north bound train,
Riding these rails but it all looks the same,
When you’re leaving it all behind;

Out the window the sun’s going down,
Through my reflection I stare at the ground passing by,
A mile at a time;

I’m only here for the ride,
One step ahead of you;

If I wait for the loneliness, You might catch up with me,
So I’m moving anywhere but here;
If I get myself out of this, I might be on top for once,
So I’ll run to, A safe place to hide,
Anywhere but here;

Moving on with this fugitive life,
I did my time under your lock and key,
Now I’m leaving, you behind;

Dodge the hounds and cover my tracks,
Broke off the cuffs just the clothes on my back,
I’m getting by, a mile at a time;

I’m only here for the ride,
One step ahead of you;

If I wait for the loneliness, You might catch up with me,
So I’m moving anywhere but here,
If I get myself out of this, I might be on top for once,
So I’ll run to, A safe place to hide,
Anywhere but here;

Some day you’ll catch me,
And talk of our good times,
But these are the best times,
Out here on the road,
Your judge and jury,
Will never convict me,
When I’m over you;

If I wait for the loneliness, You might catch up with me,
So I’m moving anywhere but here,
If I get myself out of this, I might be on top for once,
So I’ll run to, A safe place to hide;

If I wait for the loneliness, You might catch up with me,
So I’m moving anywhere but here,
If I get myself out of this, I might be on top for once,
So I’ll run to, A safe place to hide,

Start a new life,
Anywhere but here
