Court Yard Hounds – The Road You Take lyrics

I've been thinkin' 'bout what it takes to fall in love
These days
I've been going 'bout it the wrong way
I've come to realize I can't be afraid to give my
Heart away
Never knowing if you'll stay

I thread the needle's eye, and take a chance to know
Just how it feels
When you take a leap of faith
Right in front of me is the proof I need to know that
I believe
We only get the love we make

Ahhh, I, I am not alone
And I, I can journey on
I won't leave it all to fate
It's the road I take

Lines and gravity it's the price we pay to be here in
The end
And we all live with our mistakes
In times of clarity, I see the bones we break aren't
Always gonna mend
But no apology's too late

Ahhh, I, I am not alone
And I, I can journey on
I won't leave it all to fate
It's the choice you make
It's the road we take
It's the choice I make on the road I take

I've come to realize that the roads we take have water
On the bridge
I've come to realize it can be a long wait
When it's all insanity and the walls you built have all
Come caving in
And you don't know what you can take

Ahhhh, you are not alone and
Ahhhhh, you can journey on
Don't you leave it all to fate
It's the road you take
And the road goes both ways
It's the choice we make
It's the road you take
It's the road you take
