I cried as I watched you in the rear-view mirror
Crying as I drove a – way
Hardest thing I ever had to do
Was leaving you that day
When love goes bad it won’t get good
Try as though you may
Let the road take me a – way
Every fight ended up in bed
So bed was a reason to fight
But you can’t live forever in cold-shoulder days
No matter how hot the nights
Your demons I could never exorcise
My troubles you couldn’t put right
Was a road with no end in sight.
Long down the road
Maybe we will see
We can never be
Sometimes love you have to set free
Hurt like hell but I believed
It was best for you and me
Long down the road.
You know two wrongs don’t make a right
They just double the pain
Can’t lift you up if I’m sinking down
‘Cause nothing would re – main
We still live in this same old town
We may meet again
You can tell me how you’ve turned your life around
I’ll have the same refrain
We’ll smile about the fights and the hot hot nights
And part as loving friends
As our road winds to its end.
Long down the road
We’ll have come to see
We could never be
Best thing to do was set us both free
Painful tears bring wisdom’s joy
Sturdy as an old oak tree
Long down the road
Long down the road.
