Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
In sixty five I was seventeen and running up one on one
I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on
Verse 2
Running on, running on empty
Running on, running blind
Running on, running into the sun
But I'm running behind
Verse 3
Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own
I don't know when that road turned, into the road I'm on
Verse 4
Running on, running on empty
Running on, running blind
Running on, running into the sun
But I'm running behind
Verse 5
Everyone I know, everywhere I go
People need some reason to believe
I don't know about anyone but me
If it takes all night, that'll be all right
If I can get you to smile before I leave
Verse 6
Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
Look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too
Verse 7
Running on, running on empty
Running on, running blind
Running on, running into the sun
But I'm running behind
Verse 8
Honey you really tempt me
You know the way you look so kind
I'd love to stick around but I'm running behind
You know I don't even know what I'm hoping to find
Running into the sun but I'm running behind
