The Road

I can still remember every song you played
Long ago when we were younger and we rocked the night away.
How could I see a future then, where you would not grow old?
With such a fire in our bellies, such a hunger in our souls.

I guess I probably loved you and those words rolled off the tongue
It seemed that we were traveling under some old lucky sign

I know I didn't say it and no one was to blame
But the road we shared together once will never be the same.

Hey, gone all the way
Won't be coming 'round again.
Hey, with a song I pray.
And on the wings of a song, I'll fly away.

I wandered in the wilderness, for a while I was so lost.
To everything there is a season and every blessing has its cost.
So I took what you left me, put it to some use
When looking for an answer with those three chords and the truth.

I come down from the mountain, I come walking in your shoes.
I was taken for a gambler when I had no more to loose

For you put me on that path, how could I refuse.
And I spend my whole life out here working on the blues.

Hey hey.
Hey hey.
Hey

So I carried on, you can't be haunted by the past.
People come, people go and nothing ever lasts.
But I still think about you, wonder where you are.
Can you see me from some place up there among the stars?

But down here under heaven there never was a chart
To guide our way across this crooked highway of the heart

And if it's only all about the journey in the end
On that road I'm glad I came to know my old friend.

Hey, gone all the way
Won't be coming 'round again.
Hey, with a song I pray.
And on the wings of a song, I'll fly away.
I'll fly away. I'll fly away. I'll fly away.
