Do you know how it feels goin’ nowhere fast?
Running on empty, always finishing last
In a no horse town with nothing to lose

One road leading in but no way out
None of us knew what this life was about
Dazed and confused until I saw you

Just around the corner, right before my eyes
Fell in love with the girl next door, man was I surprised
Finally I see I’m exactly where I need to be
Nowhere is somewhere, when you’re there with me

My heart was dead to the world buried six feet deep
Locked away in a vault ‘til you gave me the keys
I was walkin’ in circles wearin’ holes in my shoes

But you gave me a chance like a break in the rain
Opened up my eyes and everything changed
Now I know where I’m goin’, any place with you

Just around the corner, right before my eyes
Fell in love with the girl next door, man was I surprised
Finally I see I’m exactly where I need to be
Nowhere is somewhere, when you’re there with me

Like a fortune teller you know everything I need
The answer to my prayers the reason I believe
You’re my shield and shelter in a raging hurricane
Like a shooting star I can’t even explain
