Travelin' Light

  • I used to carry my past like a duffel bag
    It's been hurting my head and breaking my back
    But when you live in the rear view you just crash
    Oh, I'm done carrying my past like that

    I'm travellin' light
    I'm laying it down
    All those demons I know I keep dragging round
    I'm cutting the ties
    I'm dropping the weight
    With all my hurt and my regrets and my mistakes
    I'm tired of living unforgiven
    So I'm travelling light
    Oh, I'm travelling light

    Don't lay the blame on anyone else
    I'm always last to forgive myself
    Well starting over is overdue
    And these old boots sure feel brand new

    I'm travelling light
    I'm laying it down
    All those demons I know I keep dragging round
    I'm cutting the ties
    I'm dropping the weight
    With all my hurt and my regrets and my mistakes
    I'm tired of living oh unforgiven
    So I'm travelling light
    So I'm travelling light (you know what I'm sayin')

    All I'm gonna take it a little bit of faith
    And it's all gonna be alright
    I only got room for some love and some truth
    And a little bit of peace of mind

    So I'm travelling light
    And I'm laying it down
    All those demons, I left 'em buried in the ground
    I'm cutting the ties
    I'm dropping the weight
    I got a one way ticket towards those better days
    I'm tired of living oh, unforgiven
    So I'm travelling light (I'm travelling light)
    Oh, I'm travelling light
    Oh, I'm travelling light
    I'm travelling light (I'm travelling light) Writer/s: Ashley Gorley, Dierks Bentley, Jon Nite
