the Lyrics

Sometimes you can sense when change is coming
I got that sense one Thursday afternoon
When I got home, I found myself invited to leave
I didn't think that change would come so soon

I packed my bags with things that didn't matter
Relics of a time, now come and gone
I told myself that this was Independence Day
And set out on the road that I'm still on

Tell me why – you don't smile the way you used to
Tell me why – you're still carrying that load
Say goodbye – to everything you've known
And meet me out there on the open road

Driving down, highway after highway
Stopping here and there to pass the time
Searching for a little bit of clarity
Tryin' to keep my life between the lines

But solitude can sometimes drive you crazy
Other times the silence keeps you sane
You can get addicted to the loneliness
But I can count the miles to ease the pain

Tell me why – you don't smile the way you used to
Tell me why – you're still carrying that load
Say goodbye – to everything you've known
And meet me out there on the open road

Let's all take a stand for something, somewhere
Let's all make a scene, go out in style
We don't have to reach our destination yet
So let's enjoy the journey for a while

Tell me why – you don't smile the way you used to
Tell me why – you're still carrying that load
Say goodbye – to everything you've known
And meet me out there on the open road
