  • I open my lungs
    To breathe in forgiveness and love
    Haunting me now
    Reminders of how I used to be
    And on down the road
    My troubles are sure to follow
    Looking out the window
    The hell if I know where I will go
    So I'll just keep on driving

    On my way to L.A.
    Looking into the rear view
    As the roads fade away
    I've sworn off my past
    First to last bad call that I ever made
    Tell me how to make right
    Every wrong turn that I've learned
    So this can all end tonight
    Tennessee line
    Just changed my mind
    Well, it's my heart I'll follow this time

    Who would've known
    That pride is so hard to swallow?
    As I rest on the shoulder of a road growing colder
    With the trouble I own
    Should I just keep on driving?

    On my way to L.A.
    Looking into the rear view
    As the roads fade away
    I've sworn off my past
    First to last bad call that I ever made
    Tell me how to make right
    Every wrong turn that I've learned
    So this can all end tonight
    Tennessee line
    Just changed my mind
    Well, it's my heart I'll follow this time

    I know I must be doing something right
    Head the other way, back to where I started out
    Ask myself if I can turn it all around tonight
    And stop living with doubt
    Hey yeah

    On my way to L.A.
    Looking into the rear view
    As the roads fade away
    I've sworn off my past
    First to last bad call that I ever made
    Tell me how to make right
    Every wrong turn that I've learned
    So this can all end tonight
    Tennessee line
    Just changed my mind
    Well, it's my heart I'll follow this time

    I've sworn off my past
    First to last bad call that I ever made
    It's my heart I'll follow this time
    I've sworn off my past
    First to last bad call that I ever made
    I'm gonna turn it all around tonight
    Turn it all around (around tonight)
    Turn it all around tonight
    I'm gonna turn it all around tonight
