Carpenters – Road Ode lyrics

I've been on this lonely road so long

Does anybody know where it goes

I remember the last time

The signs pointed home a month ago

Rented cars and empty motel rooms

Lead you everywhere but home

Crowds of people shouting

How they love the show

They don't know

(*) The endless crowds of faces

Just keep on wearing a smile

The countless times and places lead me back

Please take me back home

(**) I wonder if these feelings ever change

How many times I'll lift this load

Come tomorrow I'll be gone again

Roads of sorrows coming to an end for me

Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)
