Lyrics

Itís a dark road
And a dark way that leads to my house
And the word says
That youíre never gonna find me there, oh no
Iíve got an open door
It didnít get there by itself
It didnít get there by itselfÖ

Thereís a feeliní
But youíre not feeliní it at all
Thereís a meaning
But youíre not listening anymore
I look at that open road
Iím gonna walk there by myselfÖ

And if you catch me I might try to run away
You know I canít be there too long
And if you let me I might try to make you stay
Seems you never realize a good thing til itís goneÖ

Maybe Iím still searchiní but I donít know what it means
All the fires of destruction are still burniní in my dreams
Thereís no water that can wash away this longiní to come cleanÖ
Hey yea yeaÖ

I canít find the joy within my soul
Itís just sadness takiní hold
I wanna come in from the cold
And make myself renewed again
It takes strength to live this way
The same old madness every day
I wanna kick these blues away
I wanna learn to live again

Hey hey hey

Itís a dark road
And a dark way that leads to my house
And the word says
That youíre never gonna find me there, oh no
Iíve got an open door
It didnít get there by itself
It didnít get there by itselfÖ
