I was traveling South.

And saw myself going North.

I looked up.

I saw myself comin down.

I tried to turn back.

But I couldn't turn around.

I had to stand still as stone.

Just to see what was going on.

So I thought I'd put this trip.

Into the words of a song.

My heart said.

Don't stop now.

Just keep on comin on.

Then I heard it again.

Don't stop now.

Just keep on comin on.

I wasn't that far from home.

I shifted the Mustang into third.

Just to pick up some speed.

I wanted to hold my baby close to me.

My heart kept saying.

Don't stop now just keep on comin on.

Don't stop now just keep on comin on.

I drove into a fog.

The smoke was so thick.

I thought it was solid ice.

The fog was all around.

It had the mustang fully covered.

Menacing thick and lethal.

So I looked inside my head.

It seemed like a good time to start praying.

And there.

I saw you smiling.

Your eyes said.

Straight is the road.

That leads to me.

Don't stop now.

Don't stop now.

So I gripped the wheel ever so tightly.

Like I was touching your skin.

As the mustang roared benath me.

My heart kept saying.

Don't stop now.

Just keep on comin on.

Don't stop now.

Just keep on comin on.

Suddenly I felt a sting against my head.

I could see my baby sitting up in bed.

I thought she was waiting.

To start kissing and hugging.

But then I heard her voice say.

Wake up fool you're dreaming.

You're right here in bed next to me.
