LYRICS

Into the Wind (Cline)

I‘ve stuck around here long enough to know
These streets aren’t paved with diamonds and gold
This rusty avenue’s movin’ away
way too slow for me
I need some time for reflection
new faces and a new direction
The front page of this travellin’ section
says I can make a disconnection
from the world I’m living in…

I should be getting In
getting in
to the wind…
I should be getting In
getting in
into the wind…

Summer rains still ain’t washed away
The ashes of your memory
The bus stops and traffic lights
are the same anywhere any night
Man sometimes I feel so old
I turn the page of a tale untold
A cold lonesome winter lay just ah head
I’m hidin’ neath the covers of my bed
Oh what a fine situation I’m in

I should be getting In
getting in
to the wind…
I should be getting In
getting in
into the wind…

I should be getting on, on with things, joint checking accounts and wedding rings
I should be getting on, a red eye tonight, into the setting sun, a new horizon at daylight
that’s how I feel tonight yeah

The clock on the wall says it’s getting late
the city lights dance on my fire escape
I sing myself to sleep wid the radio on
I guess the another year has gone
the best laid plans often go awry
the grass ain’t greener on the other side
I’m too full yeah to swallow my pride
the first steps come before a stride
And sometimes the losers, they win

I should be getting In
getting in
into the wind…
I should be getting In
getting in
into the wind…
