THIS ROAD IS GOING NOWHERE Sung by Mary Cole
Lyrics
THIS ROAD IS GOING NOWHERE
Dedicated to Mary's husband, Brian.
Written by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett

CHORUS THIS ROAD IS GOING NOWHERE
If it don't lead home to you.
That thunder cloud can crash and burn,
Those fireflies dance in dew;
That lake can smile its warmest smile;
Don't mean a thing
You see
THIS ROAD IS GOING NOWHERE
If it don't lead home to
You and me.


VERSE 1 We've walked THIS ROAD together;
We've lived where we found pay.
When we came to crossroads,
Love lit the way.


CHORUS But THIS ROAD IS GOING NOWHERE ( Repeat CHORUS )

VERSE 2 With you, THIS ROAD discovered
Computers, stars and jokes;
When I was lost, your hand was there-
The hand I needed most.


CHORUS Now THIS ROAD is going nowhere ( Repeat CHORUS )


BRIDGE I wish our road of memories would stretch far beyond the stars.

CHORUS For THIS ROAD IS GOING NOWHERE
If it don't lead home to you.
That thunder cloud can crash and burn,
Those fireflies dance in dew;
That lake can smile its warmest smile;
Don't mean a thing
You see
THIS ROAD IS GOING NOWHERE
If it don't lead home,
If it don't lead home,
If it don't lead home,
If it don't lead home,
If it don't lead home,
If THIS ROAD don't lead home to
You and me.
