Running On Empty

by Steve Cavin

Sittin' by the road wonderin' what comes next.

I gave it all I got, and I gave it my best.

Life is movin' on, leavin' me behind,

Empty dreams, in an empty mind.

Thought I knew it all, knew just what to do.

Thought I'd live my dreams, make 'em all come true.

Thought that my heart, was the thing to trust,

A handful of wind, and a bit of dust.


But I, can't wait forever,

And I, can't wait too long.

So I, gotta take my chance,

And move on.


Had a wife and kids, raised a family.

Loved 'em all I could, and I think they loved me.

Grown and moved away, see 'em once in awhile.

I think about those days, and it makes me smile.

Never thought much about what to do,

Workin' at a job, but I never knew.

Time will come, when you're lookin' back,

Time to figure out, what it meant at last.


But I, can't wait forever,

And I, can't wait too long.

So I, gotta take my chance,

And move on.
