  • Some things in life are meant to fly
    And others, they were born to run
    You can't tie down up and leaving
    Like the changing of the seasons
    Good things, they come and then they go

    Like a runaway southbound train
    Like an Arizona desert rain
    Like lightning in the sky
    Like fireworks in July
    Like a left field home run ball
    Like a whiskey shot at last call
    It's like she was made for moving on
    That girl is going, going, gone

    I could say it wasn't meant to be
    But maybe meant to be's misunderstood
    Can't hold on to letting go
    Change the way the river flows
    Loving her's like roping in the wind

    Like a runaway southbound train
    Like an Arizona desert rain
    Like lightning in the sky
    Like fireworks in July
    Like a left field home run ball
    Like a whiskey shot at last call
    It's like she was made for moving on
    That girl is going, going, gone

    She ain't got one bit of stick around
    There's no sense in trying to slow her down

    Like a runaway southbound train
    Like an Arizona desert rain
    Like lightning in the sky
    Like fireworks in July
    Like a left field home run ball
    Like a whiskey shot at last call
    It's like she was made for moving on
    That girl is going, going, gone

    Going, going, gone
