Switchback


             I can't go back when I've gone this far out
             beyond the ridge. I've settled my own way
             against backtrack. I'll find no other route,
             no safer bridge. What would you have me say?
             
             I've settled on my way beyond the ridge
             through hairpin curves, down steep and narrow chutes.
             What would you have me say? No safer bridge
             would suit my nerves to chase down my pursuits.
             
             Down steep and narrow chutes, through hairpin curves,
             what risk may come I'll have to take head-on.
             To chase down my pursuits would suit my nerves,
             get me back home. How far before I'm done?
             
             I'll have to take head-on what risk may come.
             I'll find no other route against backtrack.
             How far before I'm done? Get me back home.
             When I've gone this far out I can't go back.
