The Road

I chose to follow the road
Even though i know not where it goes
My thoughts alone the only hope
To help my through this life alone
I guess i could just let it go
But then the end i'll never know.

I wonder if you know
Why the world around the road
Has changed its tune as i go
Maybe that's just how it goes
When you think you are alone
But the truth is what you hope.

A silhouette becomes a hope
And you know i already know
That i never really was alone
Because you were walking down the road
Never knowing where it goes
But like me you chose to go

So together here we go
Bound together filled with hope
Still not knowing where it goes
Truthfully i don't care to know
We don't even need the road
Its enough to not be alone

Now i ask are we alone?
Off the beaten path we go
Off behind us, gone is the road
A life alive that is the hope
We cannot be the first to know
That the road forever goes

Now we know just how it goes
Everyone feels all alone
But we’ll tell you what we know
Come and rest before you go
Eat and let me give you hope
You are not alone, just the road.
