Peter Wolf – Nothing But The Wheel lyrics

When I'm passed the boulevards
Out here underneath the stars
I’ve been flyin' past the houses, farms and fields

Leavin' all I know, back home
Rushin' through the cold night air
I’m holdin' on to nothin’, but the wheel

Stayin' clear of the interstate
I’m seekin' out those old two lanes
An' tryin' to explain the way I feel

Till all at once it’s half past three
An' it’s down to the trust and me
An' I’m holdin' on to nothing but the wheel

I’ve been tryin' to drive you off my mind
Let it that way be, I can leave it all behind

An' forty one goes on and on
An' the lights go winding in the dawn
An' the sky’s the color now of polished steel

An' the only thing I know for sure
You don’t want me anymore
Then I’m holdin' on to nothing but the wheel

I’ve been tryin' to drive you off my mind
An' let it that way baby, I can leave it all behind

An' the only thing I know for sure
Is you don’t want me anymore
An' I’m holdin' on to nothing but the wheel
An' I’m holdin' on to nothing but the wheel

Gettin' down old forty one
An' forty one takes on and on
An' the lights go winding in the dawn
An' I’m holdin' on in the corner, yeah

I'm holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on
An' the only thing I know for sure
Is you don’t want me anymore
An' I’m holdin' on to nothin’ but the wheel, oh yeah
