Wheels for wings

He told me long, long time ago
The drink is taking its toll
Still he insisted staying around
When every one else moved on
You could see trouble in his eyes,
Drinking beers, sitting on that old bar stool
He had made up his mind,
He ain't nobody's fool

Hey girl your boy ain't coming home tonight
Trade wheel for wings at the speed of 100 miles
Felt like a superstar racing down that highway
While trying to feel alive he threw it all away

He got everything just right.
Dad to be in few months time
Still the past never left him out of sight
Burning rubber on a long summer night
Lost the sight of road worrying what's behind
Life flashing by right in front of his eyes
Flipped around about a dozen times
Hit the ground so hard that no one could survive
