|Lyrics:||Fifteen hours flyin down the blacktop
Don’t know where I’m goin but I can’t stop
Sun’s coming up and I’m finally breakin free
The highway sign’s
My only guide
I’m seein things in a different light
Lookin in my rearview /You’re
I got a clear view
Everything’s gonna be alright
I’m movin out
I’m moving on
Ain’t comin back
Cause I’m already long gone
The open road is callin
Gonna take some time and take it all in
Every mile I drive
You’ll be one more mile left behind
Is my way
Gonna show ya how to outrun a heartache
(I’m) doing 85 through every small town
Don’t seem like I’m ever gonna slow down
Ain’t gonna stop til I drive you out of my mind
You’re fadin fast
Into the past
I started healin’ when I hit the gas
Lovin’ you was too hard
Had to make a fresh start
This goodbye’s gonna be last

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
