Peering across the room tonight
I realize I'll be ok;
it hurts to lose the one you love
but that street is just a one-way.
It takes two hearts to drive that road
it takes two souls to steer;
when one sees open roads while the other sees curves
the ride is over, it appears.
I wish you had my vision,
I wish you had not hit the breaks
and fled the scene, leaving me only dreams
of the beautiful journey we would take.
For when the road seemed rocky
you flipped a quick u-turn;
my tank was filled but now runs dry
in this, life's intersection.
And now it seems I must drive alone
down empty one-way streets;
we could be on that highway now
instead of full retreat.
Alone I drive down dusky roads,
no lamps to light my way;
I strike out into the great unknown,
this one-way street I take.
But if you ever need a ride,
I'll surely stop for you;
I'll take the risk and pick you up
and together we'll start anew.
My God, there is no destination
that I would not travel with her,
I'd traverse the ocean on the bridge of my heart
if she'd believe and love endure.
