There's a curve in the highway, just south of town
Where a man has pulled over to figure life out
With only his conscience and the lonesome sound
Of diesels windin' up the grade

Got a wife and two kids, they love him so
Got a woman down in Georgia, she startin' to show
He's damned if he leaves and he's sure damned if he don't
And he wonders how life got this way

'Cause it's a fine line in between right and wrong
Yeah, he's been crossin' over that border way too long
He should've seen it comin' at him right from the start
Now, there ain't no escape from a broken heart

Now, the call of the highway is a powerful thing
Like a pull of a lover or a child in a swing
He gave his heart to two women, only one wears his ring
They're both gonna have his babies now

So how do you confess, what words won't explain?
He never intended to cause this much pain
Now, he feels like a farmer who went prayin' for rain
And got more than he bargained from the clouds

'Cause it's a fine line in between right and wrong
Yeah, he's been crossin' over that border way too long
He should've seen it comin' at him right from the start
Now, there ain't no escape from a broken heart

He'll turn his car around tonight
Go home and try to face the truth
Everyone involed's gettin' hurt
And there ain't nothin' he can do, no, no, no

He should've seen it comin'
At him right from the start
Now, there ain't no
Now, there ain't no escape from

A fine line in between right and wrong
Yeah, he's been crossin' over that border way too long
He should've seen it comin' at him right from the start
Now, there ain't no escape from a broken heart

Now, there ain't no escapin' from a broken heart
Yeah, they're all gonna wind up with a broken heart
Nobody's gettin' out without a broken heart
