gonna take an eastbound highway no one’s ever heard of
and then I’ll walk back honey, I promise Ill be right home

I’ve got bags to pack but I don’t have a dollar on me
I spent the last I had on a tall cool pint of Bud

I told em I was 18 so they’d me sail me round the globe
I’m gonna send my love stateside when they take roll call

I don’t know what I’ll see, I’m scared to death to be honest
but I’ll live my life however it falls on the floor

so hold your candle close to see
the words I’ve scratched inside these walls
hold your candle close to me
help me shine a guiding light back home

so I’ll hold myself up tall and never let go
hold yourself up tall if you never know
what are you supposed to learn from me?
and who am I supposed to be today?
I’ll hold myself up tall if you never let go

no matter how many years you stack on a stubborn body
the mind stays sharp but the soul, cold as stone

and I don’t think those scars from a life lived fast and reckless
will ever fade in a way that seems calm and slow

but doctors say I got too much of him in me
self inflicted flaws, well I’m proud of em all

I can feel his restless spirit somehow guide me
all I hope is that it stays, wherever I go
