The Lonely Road


By Trevor Baker
They say the years
Have come and gone
And things are not the same
And all the ways from yesterday
Have been removed or changed
We say we’ve come so far
We can’t go back
You’d think the if we’re that smart
We’d know more than that
Chorus
I’ll take my chances
I believe the saints of old
They said a time would come like this
When many would grow cold
The Lord Himself gave warnings
So I guess we’ve been told
So I must prepare myself
To walk this lonely road
The world keeps
Growing darker now
The Light’s been left behind
And those who live their life for good
Are harder now to find
It seems that we’ve forgotten
How to blush
And if you raise your voice against it
They say, “what’s the fuss?”
I’d like to think it’s just a phase
There’s saner days ahead
‘Cuz at the rate we’re going now
We might soon raise the dead
‘Cuz they’ve been rollin’ round
For quite some time
And if they came back now
They’d say we’ve lost our minds
