about

A song I was writing about changing careers, but maybe more about life in general.

lyrics

"One Way Road"

Maybe there’s only one way to go
If life is just a one way road
I’d rather take it fast than too slow tonight

Maybe I’m better off being alone
But it’s scary being away from home
There’s no way to know which way is right

There’s no guarantees I’ll arrive
In the mean time it doesn’t help me
That I don’t believe in love at first sight

There’s only one way to go
There’s only one way to go
There’s only one way to go
If life’s a one way road

I never, I never even say goodbye
My friends and family don’t know why
I impulsively drive, drive, drive away

And maybe it helps me get a grasp on life
For awhile my memories that I can compile
Since the minutes add up faster than miles

But I’d better slow down
It’s only fifty-five through this tired town
I think I’ve been here before
Because I recognize all the faces
Coming out of the store
It’s like they’re looking for more

There’s only one way to go
There’s only one way to go
There’s only one way to go
If life’s a one way road

And maybe this long drive will help me
Maybe this long drive will
Help me find some way to settle down

There’s only one way to know
If I’m heading down the wrong way
On a one way road
And that’s to try to turn round…
