Millencolin – Highway Donkey lyrics

When I was younger I did not know how to be.
I lived my own lie and I never asked the questions why.
I always talked and dressed like everyone 'round me.
Where were my own view and my own thoughts?
I don't have a clue.

Insecurity, no confidence that was my style.
I did some false things,
You'd say I was playing the wrong strings.
To realize and see how lost I was, it took a while.
But it was worth it
'cause now I'm much more confident and fit.

I'm not going down the highway,
'cause I had the might to stop
And turn around before it was too late.
Instead I'm slowly going my way
And if I don't reach the top,
I still got loads here I appreciate.

Just because I'm older now
Does not mean I'm complete.
Yeah, I still have got fear,
It's not as strong but it's still here.
And I'm confused at times,
But now I know where to put my feet.
Right in my own trail,
That's the only place if I don't wanna fall.
