Headlights

I know that wide is the path

And I know narrow is the way

But now the road is so dark

And I just can't shine today

This is a road that I don't know

But I can't bring myself to say

That I don't know where I am

Or where to go, so I just stay

Now I'm frozen in the night

Alone in this dark, dead place

If this truly is his road for me

Why's it too dark to see his face

 

God I need you to send me a light

To help show me the way

Send me that one perfect person

To get me through the day

I need her to be my sense of vision

And she's gotta shine bright

I need her to always be there for me

She's gotta be my headlights

 

I'm not smart enough or strong enough

To weather this storm

Anyone else just sends me backwards

Then I'm stuck all alone

My truck's in a rut and I'm blinded by night

I need some one to be my sense of sight

I can't win this fight if I can't see

I can't beat life if it's just me

 

God I need you to send me a light

To help show me the way

Send me that one perfect person

To get me through the day

I need her to be my sense of vision

And she's gotta shine bright

I need her to always be there for me

She's gotta be my headlights

 

I need her to guide me where I'm goin

So we can both get there together

She's gotta hold on tight to my hand

Then any storm we can weather

Sing and shout songs loud and proud

Whenever she turns the radio up

I can always get out and push

Whenever we get the truck stuck

I don't care if I injure a quad or a calf

To follow your wet, narrow, dirt path

I only drive when there’s daylight outside

God for the night, I need some headlights

 

God now you have sent me a light

To help show me the way

Gave me that one perfect person

To get me through the day

She's my brand new sense of vision

And she shine's oh so bright

She lights up your narrow road

She's my new headlights

You gave me new headlights

My baby is my headlights
