Every Lonesome Road
Words and Music by Dave Laurence • From the album Every Lonesome Road


In the morning, we’ll go our separate ways,
Not forever, but for too many days.
There’s a road that calls my name and I go,
But girl, I want you to know that I wish it wasn’t so.

While I’m gone, we’ll do what we must do,
Keep the promise, and let faith see us through.
Take my hand and hold it tight once more,
Kiss me gently, close the door,  ‘cause of this you can be sure.

Every lonesome road I travel down,
Every highway that I’ve found,
Leads me home again; they lead me straight to you.
Every lonesome mile gets counted down
Until my feet hit holy ground,
Where you wait for me, I’m gonna see it through,
then I’m never gonna leave you.

I can see you, you’re trying to hide your fears,
And you’re smiling, but holding back the tears.
Don’t you cry, you know my heart is true,
And I’m coming back to you, baby, what else would I do?

Every lonesome road I travel down,
Every highway that I’ve found,
Leads me home again; they lead me straight to you.
Every lonesome mile gets counted down
Until my feet hit holy ground,
Where you wait for me, I’m gonna see it through,
then I’m never gonna leave you.

Though it’s not our choice to make,
Every night we lie awake,
Wishing on the same old star.
I feel you there to see me through,
I finally sleep and dream of you,
I close my eyes and there you are.

Till the morning, you fade into the sun,
I keep driving, the miles count down to none.
And I’m back in your arms where I belong,
It was you who kept me strong, and you knew it all along.

Every lonesome road I travel down,
Every highway that I’ve found,
Leads me home again; they lead me straight to you.
Every lonesome mile gets counted down
Until my feet hit holy ground,
Where you wait for me, I’m gonna see it through,
then I’m never gonna leave you.
