The Shock of Your Life

I’m behind the wheel
With nothing left unsaid
Now, nothing but floating clouds,
The bluest of skies, fill my head
The wind kisses me goodbye and hello
All my cares have fled
The mountains watch and wait for me
With their beautiful coats of red
The trees are like lovers, outstretched arms
Showing me the way ahead
Down this solitary road
A solitary road

Don’t know exactly where I’m heading
Guess I’ll feel my way along
Wanna leave the crowds and the noise behind
Find the space to sing my own song
Don’t worry about me, there’s no need
This empty space is where I’m most free.
Here I never feel alone
‘Cos this straight and solitary road
Is where I feel most at home
Yeah this straight and solitary road
Is where I feel most at home

Got tired of days spent rushing on and on
The weeks go by, life’s all a blur
No time to look up, see the sky
Who are my friends? I’m not so sure
As I get into gear and I move along
I’m breathing in the air so pure
The birds are taking flight like me
They’ve no hardships to endure
They swoop and dive – like me, so free
And say, Hey, it’s OK, now you’re
On that solitary road
Your solitary road

Chorus

Maybe I’ll come this way again
But for now we’ll share the infinite sky
For who knows what adventures lie
Along that solitary road?
My solitary road.

Chorus

Solitary Road

They say stay away from the bad crowd
I was happy to oblige
‘Cos being part of the cool ones
Was the trophy I most prized
And when I finally got there
It was goodbye boring life
Time to laugh at all the losers
Hang out with the coolest guys
Old friends felt betrayed, too bad
My star was on the rise.

Yeah, we laughed at your comic books
Yes, I must confide
I never stopped to think that you were hurting inside
I said no way, not ever
Now I think that I lied
It’s time that I surrendered
This stupid, stupid pride

And then one day I saw you
With your coffee shop nerds, so wise
Through my designer shades I saw
There was a kindness in your eyes
A warmth in your shy smile
No fakeness, no disguise
I hadn’t seen realness in such a long while
My heartbeat danced like butterflies

But I laughed at your comic books
Yes, I must confide
I never stopped to think that you were hurting inside
I said no way, not ever
Now I think that I lied
It’s time that I surrendered
This stupid, stupid pride
‘Cos you’re good enough for me
Good enough for me

I knew that when you looked at my
Forced and tacky grin
You could tell that my sense of self,
My façade, was paper-thin
Can you look right past this mask
See the person within?

And I won’t laugh at your comic books
Yes, I must confide
I never stopped to think that you were hurting inside
I said no way, not ever
Now I think that I lied
‘Cos you’re good enough for me
Good enough for me
I’ll tell you that for free
You’re good enough for me

I keep thinking of you
Do you ever think of me?
‘Cos you’re good enough for me
Good enough for me

Good Enough for Me
