Diamond Rio – Nowhere Bound lyrics

You save up your money, buy you some shoes
The highway's calling and she's right on cue
Just when you thought you had it beat
You're leaving town on a one-way street


It's a hard, hard lesson
But you're gonna have to learn it
It's a long cold swim up against the current
And somewhere down the line
You're gonna have to turn it around
'Cause boy right now you're nowhere bound

Her words still echo thru your mind
But fade away as you cross the county line
Running from trouble or from the truth
It doesn't matter either way you lose


Well you walk ten miles just to make new tracks
But you turn around and find that it's twenty miles back
And it's never gonna change it you keep leaving
Your heart's gonna break, but never break even

Where to now, do you know?
One thing's for certain
Gonna reap just what you sow
And all you planted was heartache and pain
Don't look now but it looks like rain.
