Against The Wind Lyrics

Seems like yesterday - But it was long ago
Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playlng low and
The secrets that we shared - The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind - We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'- against the wind

And the years rolled slowly past - And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home and I
Guess I lost my way - There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving 8 miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searchin'- Searchin' for shelter again and again

Against the wind - A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifters days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments - What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind - I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still running - against the wind
I'm older now but still running - against the wind
Against the wind
