There's a Mountain Dew can with lipstick on it
Rollin' round his truck bed
He just leaves it back there
One of the things he has left of her

When he drives into the late day sun
You can see a set of footprints
He ain't going to clean that windshield
He'd rather just live with the hurt

He's holdin' on to the wheel, to the way she made him feel
To the shifter, to the pictures, every precious moment with her
Like the left behind colors in the sky when the sun is gone
He's holdin' on, oh, he's holdin' on

There's that voice mail on his cell phone, he don't dare erase
She ended with, I love you and he saves it just in case
It might still be true, no, he ain't through

He's holdin' on to the wheel, to the way she made him feel
To the shifter, to the pictures, every precious moment with her
Like the left behind colors in the sky when the sun is gone
He's holdin' on to the past, to the last time he held her
The breath on his neck, the three words she said, oh

He's holdin' on to the wheel, to the way she made him feel
To the shifter, to the pictures, every precious moment with her
He's holdin' on

Yeah, he's holdin' on
(Like the left behind colors in the sky when the sun is gone)
He's holdin' on
(To the shifter, to the pictures, every precious moment with her)
He's holdin' on
