The Lyrics

This is about a NASCAR driver who struggled in 1995 and 1996 and wants a second chance to relive those years and perform better during that time, regretting the mistakes he made during the '95 and '96 seasons.
Driving NASCAR wasn't easy when I was young and bulletproof
I had no ties to bind me - a pickup, car, and a roof
I finished in the top 5 once, but it was usually hit or miss
I had a rough time in 1995, or was it '96?
Didn't seem to matter what price I had to pay
'Cause every time I almost won I blew up anyway
I worried so much about finishing that I was almost sick
Thought I'd get killed in '95, or was it '96?
Those two years blend together like Mountain Dew over ice
Melting into memories like someone else's life
I'm glad to say that I've won in Cup but if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at '95, or was it '96?
I made a start at Pocono - my first try in Cup was pretty rad
I thought my luck was changing - up to then, it'd all been bad
But in start number two Indy, I crashed at the Yard of Bricks
I lost my ride in '95, or was it '96?
Those two years blend together like Mountain Dew over ice
Melting into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say I've won in Cup but if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at '95, or was it '96?
Yeah, I've been down the road, probably been as far as hell
Deception or redemption, I guess only time would tell
I have faith in the knowledge that God gave us a gift
I couldn't hide in '95, or was it '96?
Those two years blend together like Mountain Dew over ice
Melting into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say I've won in Cup, but if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at '95, or was it '96?
I'd like another try at '95, or was it '96?
