Lonely Road

© 1999 Steve Gascoyne

You come home late, it’s Friday night
Go to bed, no, that doesn’t seem right
You’ve had some drink, but you still want more
Stay up and watch a film you’ve never heard of before

Chorus:

You’re going down, down, down, down, down, down, down that lonely road
(x2)

It’s been so long since you felt a touch
You’ve had some dreams – now you don’t want much
You used to think of a family
But now you say “That’s not for me!”

Chorus: (and into….)

So far gone, you can’t turn round…
You’ve just got to keep on heading down…

Open up your heart, open up your heart (x2)
And dream the dreams you used to dream
And don’t think anything good could ever happen to you
Your life could change so quick that you don’t know what to do

Verse 3:
Seven years later I’ve come to say
I left the broad road for the narrow way
Jesus said it’s not an easy ride
But He gives me a joy I just can’t hide…

I’m going to praise, praise, praise, praise, praise, praise, praise the Name of the Lord!
