Where the Lonely Road Goes

Hi friends, the time for a new song is here.

The song is about going through life and facing hard times, getting through those hard times, and coming out the other side and deciding that you are still willing to have hope in finding love… and then finding it. It’s a delicate topic at least to me, I feel like it’s very easy to be cynical about these things. Hard times happen and then it’s easy to look forward and think “fuck the world, this is as good as it’s going to get”. And honestly I feel that way sometimes, and that’s when songs like “Life is a Nightmare” happen. Sometimes though I realize I’m still here, I can choose to be hopeful. It’s hard to maintain that perspective, though I’d be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t explore the possibilities.

Like, what if I found it? Whatever that “it” is, I think people define it differently. For me I was thinking, the person that I want to move forward with and never let go of. I know what the cynical mind says, maybe it isn’t there, maybe it doesn’t exist, maybe it’s just society’s programming, blah blah blah. I turned those voices off, hit mute, and wrote a song about the single moment the feeling of being alone vanishes forever, and how that would feel… going from the moment where I am alone, to the moment where I’m not.

And maybe there isn’t one breath where it happens. Who cares, that’s the reality of this song, and that’s something I choose to ponder without giving a single thought to how plausible or practical it is. I choose to keep dreaming in this life, and I choose to stay connected to my imagination, and I choose to stay connected to hope.

Thank you for being here, you are appreciated 🙂

Lyrics:

Rise in the morning, getting hard to start the day

Look for a reason, why I shouldn’t throw it all away

Scream if you want me, cry if you need me to stay

Run from the future, hold me close and give it all away

Where the lonely road goes, nobody knows

In time, perhaps you will find, 

Your road intertwined with mine a while

Impossible dream, it seems

Fending off the empty, design to find a sign from above

State of animation, suspended in the search for lasting love

I cannot deny you hear the sound of screaming inside

Emerge from the shadows, hope inside will find the open side

Where the lonely road goes, nobody knows

In time, perhaps you will find, 

Your road intertwined with mine a while

Impossible dream, it seems

Made it through, rearranged, time to find a new direction

Fade to blue, faces change, life is grim without connection

I believe, you are more than the pain in your memory

I believe, eventually, we’ll leave it behind 

Breathe alone for the very last time

I want to feel like

And it could feel like

And we could feel like

I knew that it could feel like

You make me feel like

I want to feel like

And we could feel like

I knew that it could feel like

Where the lonely road goes, we’ll never know

In life, we happened to find

A new kind of peace of mind, combined

Impossible dream, redeemed.
