I long for the winding road
Its call is never ceasing
Through country back roads and on desert highways
It draws my heart to be releasing.
I long for that endless way
The one that stretches towards an unknown bay.
For the sun that both blinds and reveals the path ahead
For the moon and the stars that in the night sky tread.
My weary soul wishes for the early morning drives, passing dew covered fields
It hopes for the windy seas and sunlit stripped valleys that refuse to yield.
Give me the winding road
The endless highways and unfettered boulevards
Let my wheels run and my mind wander.
I long for the freedom the promise and the adventure of the gravel.
Give the winding road because I will have no other.
