LONELY ROAD
Music and lyrics by Muriah Rose (Admin BMI 2016)

I had a dream, I couldn't put my finger on
Find someone to love and a place to belong
But the days and years kept turning
and I had nothing to show
Saw my dreams all burning
So I headed for the road

The woman I am is not the girl I used to be
Didn't know a thing about not knowing anything
And the savior was coming
but he missed that out-bound train
He got waylaid in Austin and now he plays for tips and drinks
It's a lonely road you get to know
When you're looking for your soul
Chase the next horizon and the promises it holds
On the lonely road

I had a dream it's still calling me on
Haven't found it yet, but I can hear it's distant song
The savior was coming
but he went and lost his heart
Got himself a straight job
but he can never look the part

It's a lonely road you get to know
When you're searching for your soul
Chase the next horizon and the promises it holds
On the lonely road
