The Lads – On The Road lyrics

Hurting people everywhere it seems
The beating heart of life ripped from our dreams
So we try to mend the seams
We hold on desperately to what we've got
Our s** life, drugs, our friends no matter what
So it seems that love is there, life is here
But it's disappeared

On the road that I'm going
On the road that I choose today
There's a river that is flowing
Though the road is long
The currents of hope are strong

A man called Jesus Christ once strangely said
That life would surely come if we'd be dead
For that reason He bled
Death is when we give up all we've got
Lay down our guns, let Jesus call the shots
Then I know that love comes in, life begins
It'll never end

I could let it slip
I could let it fall
See it slide away
Say 'I don't care at all'
See my world come crashing down
And my dreams trampled on the floor
But my mind's made up
I won't go that way any more

On the road that I'm going
On the road that I choose today (it's a narrow way)
There's a river that is flowing
Though there's a price to pay
You're gonna experience pain either way
Why not turn around, see the power of God surround
Turn around
