“I slowly realized as I got older that a lot of the reason I loved being on the road was because I was running from a lot of things that I just didn’t want to deal with. That song was just me finally realizing what I’ve been doing all these years and it’s not that I’m going to stop doing it, it’s just that I’m aware of what I’m doing.”Justin Townes Earle (237)
