Lonesome Road

Written By: James Daly

When I was younger, thought I knew everything,
the world in my hands, I didn't want to be the same...
As everyone out there, struggling to get along,
I took a wrong turn, and I got lost...
I was travelin down a lonesome road,
didn't seem to matter which way I'd go,
running in circles, it was all the same,
searching for something, to ease my pain

My old friend Neil, said don't you stick it in your vein,
I didn't realize, it was all the same,
I never needed nothin, still I lost everything,
Now I'm all gone, ain't it, a cryin shame


Now momma told me, you better learn right from wrong,
life is short, soon it will be gone,
Hold on to the good times, they never seem to last,
When darkness comes, remember, this too shall pass....
