Looking For A Way Out - Lyrics by Uncle Tupelo


Lyrics
when you find you can't somehowmake it like all the restyou won't need to scrounge aroundfor someone elsetorn between the unknownand the place that you call homeand the life you want but have never knownthere was a timeyou could put it out of your mindleave it all behindthere was a timethat time is gonewhat has a life of fifty yearsin this town done for youexcept to earn your nameand place on a barstoolyou spent your whole life in this countyyou've never been out of stateyou say you're gonna make it outbefore it's too latethere was a timeyou could put it out of your mindleave it all behindthere was a timethat time is gonethere was a time when nothing seemedto make much sensethat's turned more intenseand all the crutches you've kept aroundnow are nowhere to be foundremember when you didn't haveto look ahead or behind youthere was always something right there to dobut now it's life in some kind of traplooking for a way outwell, you keep moving onthat's what it's all aboutthere was a timeyou could put it out of your mindleave it all behindthere was a timethat time is gone
