Lyrics

 

I saw a ghost by the road tonight
And then my mind ran away with me
I had a vision at the changing lines
Something's there but it's trying to leave

Take what you can, all you can carry
Take what you can and leave the past behind
Take what you can, all you can carry
Take what you can and leave the past behind
We gotta run

I saw the flames come across the ridge
Falling ashes in the northern wind
And you and I have burned every bridge
And now we got to save our souls again

Take what you can, all you can carry
Take what you can and leave the past behind
Take what you can, all you can carry
Take what you can and leave the past behind
We gotta run, run

There's something moving in the dark outside
I gotta face it when it hits the light
No one can say I didn't have your side
No one can say I left without a fight

Take what you can, all you can carry
Take what you can and leave the past behind
Take what you can, all you can carry
Take what you can and leave the past behind
We gotta run, run
