Against the Wind - Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band

It seems like yesterday But it was long ago Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights There in the darkness with the radio, playin' low The secrets that we shared Mountains that we moved Caught like a wildfire out of control 'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me How she swore that it never would end I remember how she held me, oh so tight Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind We were running against the wind We were young and strong and we were running Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past And I found myself alone Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends Found myself further and further from my home I guess I lost my way There were oh so many roads I was living to run and running to live Never worrying about paying or even how much I owed

Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time Breaking all of the rules that we bent Began to find myself searching Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind I was running against the wind I found myself seeking shelter Against the wind

But those drifter's days are past me now I've got so much more to think about Deadlines and commitments What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind I'm still running against the wind Well I'm older now but still running Against the wind Against the wind Against the wind....
