    Lyrics

    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-o-one
    I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on

    Running on-running on empty
    Running on-running blind
    Running on-running into the sun
    But I'm running behind

    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 onto the road I'm on

    Running on-running on empty
    Running on-running blind
    Running on-running into the sun
    But I'm running behind

    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

    Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
    I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
    I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
    Looking into their eyes I see them running too

    Running on-running on empty
    Running on-running blind
    Running on-running into the sun
    But I'm running behind

    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
