We never knew the trouble down the road
We just hit the gas and kept on driving
The rain was falling fast
The wipers beat lopsided rhythms in the darkness

Headlights from the head on cars threw light
against the glass, exploding diamonds
And we were driving way too fast
Running from the past we left behind us

We didn’t wanna know
Didn’t wannna see the ground
Like walking a tight rope
Just keep moving don’t look down

We pulled into a truck stop
Somewhere just outside of Needles California
You asked me for ten bucks and I said
“What about the last ten bucks I loaned you?”

We stumbled through the aisles trading secret smiles
And laughing at the owners
The newspapers read ‘Garcia Dead!’
You cried and I tried to console you

We didn’t wanna know
Didn’t wannna see the ground
Like walking a tight rope
Just keep moving don’t look down
