Listen baby, I wont leave no trace
Gonna light out of here for some cleaner place
Ill be sitting in the backseat with my hair in my face
Then gone fast as freedom on good wind

If I got my hopes too high, this is no easy kind of life
I see it in my minds eye, touch me real as daytime
I cant keep from trying

No place to run for a girl like me
Whole lot of used tos and supposed to bes
I wanna burn like August, shine like gold dust
Where everyday living cant hold me

If I got my hopes too high, this is no easy kind of life
I see it in my minds eye, touch me real as daytime
I cant keep from trying

So when I reach for you from some way down place
Dont be a stranger who wont show his face
I got no promise but these words I say
I carry you, you carry me

If I got my hopes too high, this is no easy kind of life
I see it in my minds eye, touch me real as daytime
I cant keep from trying

I see it in my minds eye, touch me real as daytime
I cant keep from trying
