lyrics

It was a whirlwind getting started
I put my trust in you so foolishly
And the road’s been long since you departed
I don’t miss you much, as much as you miss me

How do you keep the wheels rolling
When you’re running outta road?
When whatcha done before
Just ain’t working anymore
I was going nowhere
With the pedal down to the floor

They say if everybody likes you
You’re probably doing something oh so wrong
Well a guy in my old band
Don’t consider me a friend
He’s holding on to a grudge til the bitter end

How do you keep the wheels rolling
When you’re running outta road?
When whatcha done before
Just ain’t working anymore
I was going nowhere
With the pedal down to the floor
Going nowhere with the pedal down

Now I’m in a town starting over
But it ain’t like it was in San Francisco
I had a finely tuned machine
But it wasn’t fueling me
A full tank of gas don’t mean
You got somewhere to go, so

How do you keep the wheels rolling
When you’re running outta road?

How do you keep the wheels rolling, rolling
When you’re running outta road?
Coming to the end of
What you thought you could depend on
And you can’t just sing the same song
Can’t lean on what you leaned on
And changes come again
Quit looking out and get to looking in

That’s how you keep the wheels rolling
Keep the wheels rolling
Keep the wheels rolling
Keep the wheels rolling
