Too Fast

Album: Old Boots, New Dirt (2014)
  • Want to be the man that you thought I was
    I want to be the man that made you fall in love
    I can't undo everything I've done
    Let me tell you right now
    Baby, you're the only one

    I don't want to be a restless soul
    Running on empty, burning up the road
    Never knowing what I'm trying to find
    While the wheels keep turning in the back of my mind
    I don't want to take the long way home
    Sleeping on the roadside, move along
    Heading about, foot on the gas, living my life too fast

    I've been making a living, not making a life
    And knowing that now, well it cuts like a knife
    The way it's been ain't how it's gonna be
    Baby, starting right now, gonna give you the best of me

    I don't want to be a restless soul
    Running on empty, burning up the road
    Never knowing what I'm trying to find
    While the wheels keep turning in the back of my mind
    I don't want to take the long way home
    Sleeping on the roadside, move along
    Heading about, foot on the gas, living my life too fast

    Ooh, I've been a rolling stone
    I think it's time for me to roll on home

    I don't want to be a restless soul
    Running on empty, burning up the road
    Never knowing what I'm trying to find
    While the wheels keep turning in the back of my mind
    I don't want to take the long way home
    Sleeping on the roadside, move along
    Heading about, foot on the gas, living my life too fast
