lyrics

Stopped

Slow driving on a short ride home
Mind racing chasing memories and hopes
Sun sliding up starting a slow summer day
The sun chasing the moon away

A train pulls up
Right on my left
Stretching more than I can see
And up ahead there is no end for me

So why am I stopped?
What is this life?
Why am I stopped?

Should I stay or should I go?
What am I running so hard to?
In a rush to get to nowhere
Turn around or see it through?
The roads all lead back to this place
And this dead pace my life has found
Back to here and here I’m stopped

Out there no one waits for me
No thing no how no holding me back
What is this life? A string of days?
To months to years they fade away
And here I am right where I was
Unchanged unmoving
Just like the year before I want much more

So why am I stopped?
What is this life?
Why am I stopped?

Should I stay or should I go?
What am I running so hard to?
In a rush to get to nowhere
Turn around or see it through?
The roads all lead back to this place
And this dead pace my life has found
Back to here and here I’m stopped

The roads all lead back to this place
And this dead pace my life has found
Back to here and here I go
