Lyrics

Solitary Road

Copyright 2013 Dana Clark

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 a common truth

This passionate obsession left less of me for you

CHORUS:  But 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

CHORUS:  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
