A ROAD TO NOWHERE
WRITERS GERRY GOFFIN, CAROLE KING

I tried to hang on for as long as I could
But now I can see that it just ain't no good
Our love it has wasted
Right down to the core
Whatever we had
We don't have anymore
You've got to get off a road to nowhere
You've got to get off a road to nowhere
Well I tried and I tried to make things work out right
But I guess we're two people who can't help but fight
Your eyes they are open
And oh so are mine
We both need our freedom
Don't you think it's about time
I'm trying to get off this road to nowhere
I'm trying to get off this road to nowhere
Thank you for the good times we've had in the past
But we both know enough to know good times don't last
Baby you're just no good for me
And I'm no good for you
Let's not waste our time talkin'
We both know what to do
We've got to get off this road to nowhere
It's time to get off this road to nowhere
You've got to get off this road to nowhere
We've got to get off this road to nowhere
