The Road Lyrics

The Road

I wish I could have seen
This road before the ride
Winding through the years
But seldom does she lie
 
Watching memories fade
As days turn to dusk
Time slips through your fingers
While this old body rusts 
 
 Shell tempt with her pleasures
Shell tempt you with her gold
Shell leave your body restless
While your searching for your soul
 
Her neon lights will taunt you
While your chasing after dreams
A trail of broken hearts
Lay within her endless theme
 
Some turns will make ya tremble
Some stops will make ya still
Some bumps will leave ya breathless
Some holes you l never filled
 
So if you chose this road
Be wary of her ride
Shell wind ya through the years
Smiling while you cry
 
Her lonesome sound will haunt you
Leave you a restless soul
When darkness falls shell want you
To surrender her control
 
Of lies and betrayal
and when it seems you’ve reach the end
Her sirens call beckons
And takes around again
 
Some turns will make ya tremble
Some stops will make ya still
Some bumps will leave ya breathless
Some holes you l never filled

 



Old Friend

The harder you struggle
The tighter the rope
You gasp for air
But only choke
 
You stand on the edge
Just waiting to fall
A thousand tears
built these walls
 
Pain can you feel me
My old friend
Pain can you feel me
I’m back again
 
Broke and busted
Tattered and torn
We close ours eyes
Before the storm
  
You stand on the edge
Just waiting to fall
Its hard to see
Beyond these walls
 
Pain can you heal me
My old friend
Pain can you feel me
I’m back again
 
Hands are tied
Feet are bound
Try to swim
But only drowned
 
We stand on the edge
Just waiting to fall
I  can see the light
Above these walls
 
Pain can you feel me
My old friend
Pain can you feel me
I’m back again

 


 
Blind Man at the Wheel

Well I’m making my way back to Memphis
In this old Oldsmobile
Got half a tank of Gas and a Heart made of Glass
And A blind man at the wheel

Well I use to love ya Memphis
Gurl ya don me wrong
I just gave you my heart
We both knew it from the start
Love won’t last in a county try Song

Well I’m making my way back to Memphis
in this old Oldsmobile
Got half a tank of Gas
and a Heart made of Glass
And A blind man at the wheel

You drove to drink me back in Memphis
With your promises’ of silver and gold
Now I’m standing in line
Between 4th street and Vine
Just waiting for a cup of Joe

Well I’m making my way back to Memphis
in this old Oldsmobile
Got half a tank of Gas
and a Heart made of Glass
And A blind man at the wheel

Well  I’ve got that yearning feeling for ya Memphis
I know this wicked circle Has no end
No matter where ya land Your just a one night stand
And I got them Memphis Blues once again

Well I’m making my way back to Memphis
in this old Oldsmobile
Got half a tank of Gas
and a Heart made of Glass
And A blind man at the wheel

Well I’m making my way back to Memphis
in this old Oldsmobile
Got half a tank of Gas
and a Heart made of Glass
And A blind man at the wheel

 



Cuz your love

I Use ta close my eyes
While you played your games
You made me think I was to blame
But your love won’t lie to me no-more
 
I’ve cleared my mind
And licked my wounds
Still feels empty in every room
But your love won’t lie to me no-more
 
Go ahead and cry cry cry to hide your shame
Lie you lie to ease the pain
 
 Life’s a broken mirror
The reflections never changed
You use to say loves a losers/ game
But your love won’t lie to me no-more

Go ahead cry cry cry to ease the pain
There’s nothing left to reclaim/explain
 
I can’t remember a time
You didn’t drive me insane
My mind would chase ya through every frame
But your love won’t lie to me no-more
 
Go ahead and cry cry cry to hide your shame
Lie you lie to ease the pain
 
Now I look out my window
The worlds shinning on me
Faith has paved my destiny

Cuz your love won’t lie to me no-more
Cuz your love won’t lie to me no-more
but your love won’t lie to me no-more



Drop of Rain
 
What I’ve got I call my own
This space in time I rent
Before that eagle fly
All my moneys spent
 
You took my house
I kept my dog
What I have left I wear
If this pain was lined with gold
Id be a million air
 
Please  o Please
I’m on my knees
But I’m not begging you to stay
I’m just praying for a drop of rain
To wash this blues away
 
You work all your life
Sell your soul
Paddle just to stay afloat
You stand on the dock to watch your ship come in
Its sinks before it reaches port
It sinks while other gloat
 
Please  o Please
I’m on my knees
But I’m not begging you to stay
I’m just praying for a drop of rain
To wash this blues away
 
Now you my hold a cardboard sign
At the end of and exit ramp
Or your jags always in the shop
Or your castle so cold and damp
 
Theirs no need to fall to your knees
Its never as bad as they say
All ya need is a drop of rain
To wash these blues away

 



Maybe Sumday

WOKE ONE MORNING
TO THE HOWLING WIND AT MY DOOR
SEEM TO CALL MY NAME
THINKING SUMDAY
MAYBE SUMDAY
WELL SEE THINGS THE SAME
 
THEIRS GOT BE MORE TO THIS LIFE
THAN WHATS BEEN KEEPING ME SANE
SAYING SUM DAY
MAYBE SUMDAY
WELL SEE THINGS THE SAME 
 
ILL TELL YA WHAT I KNOW
BUT ITS NOT WORTH THE TIME TO SAY
OR BUT THE TRUTH WONT MEAN A THING
 
WHEN I LOOK BACK
ON THE THINGS I'VE DONE
AND WISH I COULD CHANGE
MAYBE SUMDAY
MAYBE SUMDAY
WELL SEE THINGS THE SAME
 
NOW I STAND HERE
ON THIS MOUNTAIN
IN THE POURING RAIN
THINKING SUMDAY
MAYBE SUMDAY
WELL SEE THINGS THE SAME

 



Tell me why

 

Blinded by the sun
Burn a smoke to start a day

I can feel my soul deing

And all I can say is

tell me why tell me why

tell me why tell me why

 

I can feel your anger

from the fire in your eyes

Questions go unanswered

This pain you cant diquise

CHOURS

gray skys blue grass if I close my eyes

how long will this last

CHOURS

Our homeless go hungry

While other nations we feed

This country lies crying

How long will she bleed

CHOURS

Morning comes same as yesterday

I look in the mirror still all I have to say
