THE ROAD I'M ON

Jack Tempchin

Nobody sees things the ways I do
Nobody knows what I'm going through
Nobody looks beyond a cloudy sky
Way up there where eagles fly

And the road I'm on is long
I've got many miles to go
Yeah the road I'm on goes on
It's the way I know
It's right in front of me
But no one else can see
The road I'm on

People ask about you and me
We didn't choose who we were born to be
Sometimes no matter what you do
It ends up you're only passing through

And the road I'm on is long
I've got many miles to go
Yeah the road I'm on goes on
It's the way I know
It's right in front of me
But no one else can see
The road I'm on

Yeah some day
You can bet that I will find a way
There's a vision out there
Shimmering in the air
People try but they never win
People knock but they can't get in
People fail when they shoot for the moon
But I think they just give up too soon

And the road I'm on is long
I've got many miles to go
Yeah the road I'm on goes on
It's the way I know
It's right in front of me
But no one else can see
The road I'm on
