The Road

Written By: Betsy Ham

“The Road”

v1
This is the road I'm taking
I think I'll be just fine
Those mountains in the distance,
I know they'll take some time to climb.

The road I chose is rocky
And there are ditches in the dark,
But even when I can't see
I think I've known right from the start

chorus
This is where I'm meant to be
There's no guarantees
If I don't try
I know I have to believe
I can do anything
One step at a time
Nothing ventured, nothing gained...
And I'll never be the same
For I'm the only one to blame
If I don't try.

v2
The sky above is cloudy
And there's a storm brewing ahead
I want to run for cover,
But I bare my teeth instead...

The river rises higher
As my sight grows ever dim
But I'll keep pushing forward
'Cause I know it's sink or swim.

chorus
This is where I'm meant to be
There's no guarantees
If I don't try
I know I have to believe
I can do anything
One step at a time
Nothing ventured, nothing gained...
And I'll never be the same
'Cause I'm the only one to blame
If I don't try.

bridge
There's been tough times,
Rough terrain, and cloudy skies
Along the way
And the lows outnumber the highs
Most every day

But the view from the top
Can't compare to
Anything else anywhere so
I just have to stop and stare...

chorus
'Cause this is where I'm meant to be
There's no guarantees
If I don't try
I know I have to believe
I can do anything
One step at a time
Nothing ventured, nothing gained...
And I will never be the same
'Cause I'm the only one to blame
If I don't try.

This is the road I'm taking...
