Dark Road Lyrics

by Annie Lennox

It's a dark road and a dark way that leads to my house
And the word says, you never gonna find me there, oh no
I've got an open door, it didn't get there by itself
It didn't get there by itself

There's a feelin' but you're not feelin' it at all
There's a meanin' but you're not listenin' any more
I look at that open road, I'm gonna walk there by myself

And if you catch me, I might try to run away
You know I can't be here too long
And if you let me I might try to make you stay
Seems you never realize a good thing till it's gone

Maybe I'm still searchin' but I don't know what it means
All the fires of destruction are still burnin' in my dreams
There's no water that can wash away this longin' to come clean

I can't find the joy within in my soul, it's just sadness takin' hold
I wanna come in from the cold and make myself renewed again
It takes strength to live this way, the same old madness everyday
I wanna kick these blues away, I wanna learn to live again

It's a dark road and a dark way that leads to my house
And the word says, you never gonna find me there, oh no
I've got an open door, it didn't get there by itself
It didn't get there by itself
