Beyond The Headlights
Words and Music: Karen Mal
 
You don't have to see beyond the headlights
To find your way back home
You don't have to know which way the wind blows
To know it chills you to the bone

Fifteen hours out of Memphis
There's a preacher on the radio
There's a midnight call for your salvation
You've got a thousand miles to go

There's a promise in the night sky
A belief in things you haven't seen
So you're counting down the exits
And all the miles that lie between

You don't have to see beyond the headlights
To find your way back home
You don't have to know which way the wind blows
To know it chills you to the bone

You've got a backseat full of doubts and good intentions
You can't wait to know what's wrong or right
You can't make the time go faster no matter how hard you drive
There is no shortcut on this road tonight

You know the map is not the journey;
You know the sign is not the road
Shine your lights on the highway, keep your hands on the wheel
You will find everything you need to know

So drive all night if you want to
Like there's an answer to the questions in your bones
But you don't have to see beyond the headlights
To find your way back home
Go and find your way back home
Maybe you're already home
