lyrics

Curse the Road

Your bags are packed and you’re set to go
The future hangs in the palm of your hand
And there you stand, with your head held high
The half moon lights the highway and it’s all you know
The road ahead looks clear, and it looks bright
And with all your might, as you effortlessly fly

But when the road spits you out and kicks the dust back up in your eyes
Don’t second guess, don’t lose your step, whatever you do, don’t comprise
When the winds won’t seem to stir, and the days all start to blur
And the engine that’s been driving you is stuck
Try not to curse the road when it has you feeling down on your luck

With your dreams and what is real and a grip on each
But it’s easy to lose track when you’re on the run
And some damage done, but that’s all it ever was
So the half moon and horizon seem so out of reach
But that never was a reason not to try
Or wonder why the road unravels like it does

But when the road spits you out and kicks the dust back up in your eyes
Don’t second guess don’t lose your step, whatever you do, don’t compromise
When the towns all look the same and you’re forgetting why you came
And the line that cast you out begins to reel
Try not to curse the road when you can’t remember why you’re at the wheel

So when you’re down and out just try your best to remember
All the splendor and let it wash in with your love
Because you know there will never be another way
For you to dream of

But when the road spits you out and kicks the dust back up in your eyes
Don’t second guess don’t lose your step, whatever you do, don’t compromise
When your cover's all been blown, and your weariness has shown
And you feel the fear start running all your dreams
Try not to curse the road when you feel like you are running out of steam
Try not to curse the road--I swear it’s not as long as it seems
