My heavy heart pounds hard tonight down this highway in the wind
The windshield wipers clean away the tears I cry within
The love I've thrown away, I know I'll never feel again
And I, I'm just twistin' in the wind

Some one cut me down from here
I can't prove what don't exist
Did you feel the same as I?
Or was there something I might have missed?

I turned my back on everyone who wanted me to win
I needed you so bad, I guess
That's the way that I was back then
Now I, I'm just twistin' in the wind

I believe I'll go down to the bridge and watch the trains roll by
See the sparks fly from their wheels where the rocks and the cinders lie
The weight I feel inside tonight could put a freight train in a spin
And I, I'm just twistin' in the wind

Some one cut me down from here
I can't prove what don't exist
Did you feel the same as I?
Or was there something I might have missed?

I turned my back on everyone who wanted me to win
I needed you so bad, I guess
That's the way that I was back then
Now I, I'm just twistin' in the wind

And love has made a fool of me at the gates of guillotine
I can't believe I heard the truth comin' from your answering machine
How did I become this broken man, was I too blind to bend?
Now I, I'm just twistin' in the wind, I, I'm just twistin' in the wind, I, I

Some one cut me down from here
I been hangin' here too long
Release me from the binds of love
I can't tell right from wrong, I, I
