Down the Road

lyrics

Down the road 2x
There are so many people down the road
With your head on the pillow
And a story that has been untold
Keep a hold of all your bridges down the road

Now this morning all you people
Woke up to the very same sound
Did you get its meaning?
This is what I found
Keep a hold of all your bridges down the road

That everybody's trying
To be a number too
But really there's nothing out there
Nothing for you to do
There's a whole lot of people down the road

But to sit here thinking
About what you have done
How you messed up your whole life
Cleared out of all its fun
There's so many people down the road

So it's time to get back now
To the friends you've left behind
See them out there dangling
Get back and rewind
Keep a hold of all your bridges down the road

<chorus>

I got nothing here to argue
Nothing left to spend
Please let me extend my greetings
To everyone I've met
There are so many people down the road

So here's to all you cowards
I met upon this road
I know you were only trying
To ease off your load
There's a whole lot of people down the road

Now come on all you people
Let's all join in sin
There ain't no time to waste here
Come on let's begin
Keep a hold of all your bridges down the road

To wake up in your own time
To really be free
To throw a party
Everywhere you'd be
There's a whole lot of people down the road

<chorus>
