Lyric and Song By: Bob Seger

Seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely
She was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness 
With the radio playing low

And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wild fire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn
And nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me, oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong
We were runnin' against the wind

And the years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers that I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home

And I guess I lost my way
There were so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying, or even how much I owed

Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching 
Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind
There's something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter 
Against the wind

Well those drifters days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and Commitments
What to leave in
What to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now
But still runnin' against the wind
Well, I'm older now
And still running against the wind
Against the wind....
