One Way Through        
Rolling wrong down a one-way, lost in a dark daze
People honking at me - I just never saw the sign
No matter how many sun breaks, not one on my face
I look around and everybody and I wonder if you ever feel
Oh, the way I do

No one here can grow for me and no on knows my pain
I try to find an easier way but I never do
Cause there's only one way through

Turn around in the alley, get headed the right way
I should feel better but I still don't feel fine
Maybe I need mountains, cool water and small towns
And you waiting for me when I'm over that final rise
Looking in your true eyes

No one here can grow for me and no on knows my pain
I try to find an easier way but I never do
Cause there's only one way through

If the world became all that you yearn for
Tell me, what would fill
All the lovely, lonely, longing hours of your yearning?

Rolling wrong down a one-way, mmm, having a good day
People yelling at me, but I don't even mind
Cause I drive real careful, two wheels on the sidewalk
Don't want to wreck nobody, but I need to get out of town
And I must go this way

No one here can grow for me and no on knows my pain
I try to find an easier way but I never do
Cause there's only one way
No one here can love for me, got to open my own heart
You tell me that it's so easy and I say to you
That the two of us should start
