Lyrics:

Two-lane highway, runnin' west.
I'm leavin' yesterday behind.
In my mind I'm over you,
But my heart is gonna take some time.
No more cryin', no more fightin'
Battles that we just can't win.
Now that Elvis has left the building
He ain't comin' back again.
[So] this is how it feels to be gone,
To be history, to be movin' on.
To be runnin', to be flyin',
To be wonderin' why it took so long
To be gone.
Rough weather, we've had our share,
With all that love has put us through.
But sweet freedom fills the air
When nothin's left to hold on to.
[Now] this is how it feels to be gone,
To be the melody in a goodbye song.
To be rollin' down the line to be knowin' this time
It can't be wrong
To be gone.
Dark night, rain in my headlights,
But my vision is clear.
One more mile to the sunrise,
And I can see the future from here.
[And] this is how it feels to be gone,
To be history, to be movin' on.
To be runnin', to be flyin',
To be wonderin' why it took so long
To be gone.
