Looking out across the coast
Can't find the divide
Maybe the ocean is a ghost
Living in the horizon

And my heart beats fast
As I count the miles
From the city lines
No I'm not running
I'm just stealing time

If I don't go
How will I ever know
What's on the other side
I can't tell the wheel from the road
Or the sea from the sky

I gotta find, I gotta find
Find the divide

I drove a lonely distance
Till the road turned to fire
The night smoothing in around me
But I'm not tired

And my heart beats fast
Shadows win the fight against the heat, oh
Dim lights are glowing now
And I can't tell the lion from the beast

If I don't go
How will I ever know
What's on the other side
I can't tell the wheel from the road
Or the sea from the sky

I gotta find, I gotta find
Find the divide
