I Don’t Want To Go Down This Damn Road Anymore


I’m so tired of feeling broken and poor.
I just want to walk the sandy beaches of the shore.
I won’t let anyone hurt me anymore.
They’ve taken my soul.
And left me in a deep hole,
And left me feeling like a scummy ole mole.
I don’t want to go down this damn road anymore.
It’s more than life’s circumstances.
I just want second chances.
To live and feel true romances,
You know, when a man takes a girl’s hand.
And feels like he just handed her the sun, moon and stars,
He soon forgets about hot chicks in smoky bars.
He just see’s loves traveling stars.
Dancing in her sparkling glittery eyes,
He suddenly feels wise.
And looks at her and says; I want more.
I don’t want to go down this damn road anymore.
Girl, it’s you I want. I gotta have more.
I’m tired of my life feeling empty.
I want it to feel complete.
Girl, you drive me crazy.
I just want to lie in the sun and get lazy.
With you by my side for the rest of my life,
Want you be my wife.
And together will travel up new hills.
Forgetting about all of those freaky psychedelic pills,
Our lives are waiting for new thrills.
Together will run away from what kills.
The devil can never leave you stranded.
I will never take our lives for granted.
Girl, you’re making these feelings wild.
I like a tamed child.
In your hands that wants to be held more.
I don’t want to go down this damn road anymore.
Then suddenly you look in his eyes and know that life has to offer more.
When you hear his heartbeat,
You collapse at his feet.
Surrendering all!
You fall.
In his arms and say, I don’t want to go down this damn road anymore.
Let your love pour.

Poem of the Day

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
