I open my lungs
To breathe in forgiveness and love
Haunting me now
Reminders of how I used to be
And on down the road
My troubles are sure to follow
Looking out the window
The hell if I know where I will go
So I’ll just keep on driving

On my way to LA
Looking into the rearview as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past
First to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right
Every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight
Tennessee line (Tennessee line) just changed my mind
Well it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

Who would’ve known (who would’ve known)
That pride is so hard to swallow
As I rest on the shoulder
Of a road growing colder with the trouble I own
Should I just keep on driving

On my way to LA
Looking into the rearview as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past
First to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right
Every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight
Tennessee line (Tennessee line) just changed my mind
Well it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

I know I must be doing something right
Head the other way back to where I started out
Ask myself if I can turn it all around tonight
And stop living with doubt

On my way to LA
Looking into the rearview as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past
First to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right
Every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight
Tennessee line (Tennessee line) just changed my mind
Well it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

I've sworn off my past
First to last bad call that I ever made
Well it's my heart I'll follow this time
I've sworn off my past
First to last bad call that I ever made
Oh, I'll turn it all around tonight
Turn it all around tonight
Turn it all around tonight
I’m gonna turn it all around tonight
At the Tennessee line
