Without You There For Me

Without You There For Me

Verse One
The skies are black with rain and this road's so very long.
The road signs where are they? I guess the road I took was wrong?
When I stop to ask the way, the people I meet never ventured very far
and they're happy here to stay, happy for things to stay the way they are.

Verse Two
I find a road with promise, a dead end lies in wait for me.
I look up to the heavens, I might find a guiding star.
I' m lost without a map, and the frustration it almost drives me off the edge.
Is this some sadistic trap, so many roads and who knows where they lead?

Chorus
Without you there for me,
well I don't think I could make it.
Without you there for me,
Yeah I don't think I could take it.
Without you there for me,
without you there for me,
Without you there.

Verse Three
My eyes are grasing over, at least in dreams I can be free.
The day is almost over, and I'm tempted to stop and take some sleep.
There's a road that lies ahead, and it's calling, yeah it's calling out for me.
Seek and you shall find, is it some Holy Grail I search for? Don't ask me.
