  1. The Finish Line

From the recording Music & Lyrics

Lyrics

Saw 68’ Mustang that reminded me of me,
Back when I was young
A red V-8, chrome racing wheels,     
Blazing in the sun
I've driven hard and fast through this life
A little worse for the wear                             
My heart beats strong, though the road is long         
There’s still more love to share,        
There’s still more love to share
 
I'm not an old racing car
I won't turn to rust
When I reach the finish line
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
 
The Junkyard is not my fate
I was built to roll
My spirit lives for the race
Eight spark plugs fire my soul
I've got a dent in my right fender,
Four speed on the floor
One thing I know about time,
Give me a just little bit more
 
I'm not an old racing car
That slowly turns to rust
When I reach the finish line
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
 
Those that have gone before us,
Are closer than we know
Their energy never dies
They live on in our hearts, our minds and souls
 
We’re not old racing cars
That slowly turn to rust
When we reach our finish line
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
 
The final sound that you'll hear,
Is not a rusted horn
It’s the God-like presence of your soul;
Returning and reborn,
Returning and reborn
 
Saw 68’ Mustang that reminded me of me,
Back when I was young
