Road To Nowhere

lyrics

Driving down a paved road,
wave to the people passing.
Taking in the sights,
[there’s] so much to see.
Buildings everywhere
stretching the horizon.
At night they glow
it’s hard to breathe. So hard to breathe.

So I’m taking that road to nowhere, but this can’t be all I want to be.
One in a million odds we’ll meet again.
Just remember me.

Driving down a dirt road,
wave to the kinfolk.
Taking in the sights,
[there’s] not much to see.
When the sun shines
I will recognize
the sweetness that I used to feel
in your lying eyes.

And I’m on this road in the middle of nowhere, but this can’t be all I want to be.
One in a million, shining stars in the sky.
Could you be happy just getting by?

Hear the thunder, feel the rain drops falling on my head.
Coming down in buckets and filling me with lead.

And I take that road to nowhere when I’m alone at night and it’s hard to breathe.
One million, shining stars in the sky.
Could you be happy just getting by?
I’m happy right where I am, trying to get by. I’m getting by.
