I'm fading out of sight
My wheels are the only sound
Runnin at the speed of a' light
'N I can't slow down now

Out on an open road
Racin' to beat the night
No matter where I'm goin'
I guess I'll get alright

So why don't I understand
What's trippin' me up?
It oughta be a simple thing

Chorus:
I can't hold on
'N I can't return
Its time to let go
'N start to live and learn

I took a one-way flight
Too high to see the ground
Now I know how long it takes
A heart to come down

Alone on the highway now
Takin' it mile by mile
I'd rather be a lonely man
Than an imprisoned child

So why do I feel the strain
That keeps trippin' me up
Will it ever be a simple thing

Chorus:
I can't hold on
And I can't return
Rivers will run
'N bridges will burn
I can't say just how
But there's no lookin' back now

Bridge:
When everything fades away
And there's nothing left
Then you got to keep rememberin'

Chorus:
I won't slow down
'N I can't return
Its time to let go
'N start to live and learn

So why don't I understand
What's trippin' me up?
Well it oughta be a simple thing

I can't hold on
'N I can't return
Rivers will run
'N bridges will burn
I can't say just how
But there's no lookin' back now
I wo't slow down
'N I can't return
As night turns to dawn
The pages will burn
I can't say just how
But there's no lookin' back now
I can't hold on
'N I can't reurn
Its time to let go
'N start to live and learn
