lyrics

I used to dream 'bout leaving
So I packed up all my stuff
Loaded up the car and I hit the road
Found that I could never go
Far enough

I was a young man with ambition
Dreams floating 'round my head
The world upon my shoulders
And pockets full of lead
Hometown roots can hold you down
And hometown blues turn gray
And after a while you get tired
Of saying, "Some day..."
So you take your chance to step outside
And see the world at large
You check your hand and realize
No one else is playing cards
So you tuck your tail you turn around
And you try to come back home
You get there and it hits you
You came back empty-handed and alone

I used to dream 'bout leaving
So I packed up all my stuff
Loaded up the car and I hit the road
Found that I could never go
Far enough

Every one looks different
Especially when they look at you
You find out people like to talk too much
And make up there own truth
But you know you can't blame them
When you start to look around
You see those dirty roots
Constantly pulling them down
I used to think I was different
But now I know I'm just the same
Twenty years from now
Nobody 'round here's gonna know my name
I'll fade into obscurity
Taking nothing but regret
I'll lie at night and tell myself
I did my best

I used to dream 'bout leaving
So I packed up all my stuff
Loaded up the car and I hit the road
Found that I could never go
Far enough

I'll carve my words
In the side of this tree
In hopes that someone
Might learn from me
Run it into the ground
And leave that car
Keep walking until you go
Far enough
Keep running until you go
Far enough

I used to dream 'bout leaving
So I packed up all my stuff
Loaded up the car and I hit the road
Found that I could never go
Far enough
