lyrics

I was driving back west through the patches of fog
We had the brights turned on and we listened to songs
I didn’t know it then but I was right where I needed to be
You were back at home you were working a job
And you were hanging out nights with your friends at the bar
You didn’t know it then but you were right where you needed to be

When all you have is what’s inside your pocket
And all your dreams seem stuck up on the shelf
Well you’d best prepare the way for change is comin’
Cause the road will always take you somewhere else

I was waking up to the sound of the raindrops while you
Were in the southeast sleeping in truck stops
I didn’t know it then but I was right where I needed to be
You were making friends with people I’d never meet and I was
Praying to God that your band would succeed
I didn’t know it then but you were right where you needed to be

When all you have is what’s inside your pocket
And all your dreams seem stuck up on the shelf
Well you’d best prepare the way for change is comin’
Cause the road will always take you somewhere else

Don’t forget
All you’ve ever wanted is yours

Well the east coast is busy and the west coast is wild
The south keeps it steady while the north rolls around
And somewhere in the middle there are some towns that no one knows
Where every local kid comes out to every local show
Oh the road will always take you somewhere
