Racing The Dark Lyrics by Alan Jackson

 

There’s a red outline where that diamond used to be
Another time-stamped love ends in casualty
A one bedroom apartment is now her greatest fear
As the crash of all the memories ring from ear to ear

She’s headed north out of Savannah
Stretchin’ her pride and gasoline
Heart as empty as that red gauge
Askin’ God to help her see
Why He took her there
Why He broke her heart
Where the wheels will stop
And the healing starts
Chasin’ I-95
And racin’ the dark

It’s been two years now, she’s just startin’ to see
Her life is hers again and who she’s gonna be
She’s so used to runnin’, can’t get nowhere sittin’ still
In the silence of the morning, she feels his love and always will

She’s headed south bound towards Savannah
Stretchin’ her pride and gasoline
Heart as empty as that red gauge
Askin’ God to help her see
Why to go back there
When she’d come so far
If she really stops
Will the healing start?
Chasin’ I-95
And racin’ the dark

There’s a red outline where some roses used to be
Even standing there, she still can’t believe
She never saw it coming, thought she’d be the one to leave
She whispers, “I love you,” and falls down on her knees

And now she’s back home in Savannah
Makin’ friends with painful memories
Her heart is fragile but it’s open
Thankin’ God He helped her see
Why He took her there
How He’ll heal her heart
When her runnin’ stops
So her life can start
Right off I-95
And facin’ the dark

Right off I-95
And facin’ the dark
