Take off on the road tonight
Take off and don't look back till I tell you
When it's safe in the brake lights
Take off on the road tonight
Take off and look out on the horizon
Where you're driving

This old truck keeps on moving
You're riding shotgun by my side
We'll keep on driving till midnight
We'll look death in the eye

I know a place to hide
I know of a gambling hall off the highway
Where my friends would go in their school days
We can sleep inside
We can unpack the truck in the morning
It's time for sleeping

We didn't think through the planning
We didn't think at all
I've never sinned in my life
Now I'm being hunted like a dog

I remember when I was a little girl
I was taught right from wrong
Now I see the only flaw in me
Is that I got caught up in your song

I'll take off on the road tonight
I'll slip away while you're still sleeping
Out of your sight
I am washing my hands
This never was my plan but I have to
It's the right move

There's a place in the heavens
For people as beautiful as you
You never were meant to be here
You've got bigger things to do
