Story

The story of my life so far. 

This is as nakedly honest as it could possibly be.

Lyrics

SOLITARY ROAD

 

 

I assumed I’d live like all the other people do

Side by side with someone in a story told by two

I made the proper promises, “Forever and a day”

Imagine my surprise when it came time to turn away

*

Not a challenge I have chosen, but a choice that's chosen me

To express the inexpressible in words and harmony

To search out rhyme and rhythm to reflect an honest truth

A passionate obsession that left less of me for you

*

Now I must walk a solitary road

Following a melody only I can hear

Something like a signal sent in code

A compass I can count on as I navigate the years

Still I am grateful for the moments when you held me close

And I am grateful for the moment when you let me go

*

This illusion: passion perfect love will never end

This truth: what we shared as lovers left us best of friends

Now forward on my own with lessons learned from every loss

To find completeness in myself has been well worth the cost

*

For I must walk a solitary road

Following a melody only I can hear

Something like a signal sent in code

A compass I can count on as I navigate the years

Still I am grateful for the moments when you held me close

And I am grateful for the moment when you let me go
