UPBEAT @ 130 BPM. MOOD; HAPPY, RELIEF, GRATEFUL CONTENT, HAPPY RELIEF. by Lightning Rod Nichols
THIS SONG HAS A GOSPEL FEEL TO IT, COMPLETE WITH BAPTIST HAND CLAPS AT THE END OF THE SONG, VERY COOL. THIS SUBJECT HAS FOUND HIS WAY IN LIFE AND FEELS GOOD ABOUT IT. HE IS THANKFUL FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS HERE, AS WELL AS, THOSE THAT HAVE GONE BEFORE HIM. THE DECISION TO MOVE ON HAS COME TO HIM, AS AN EPIPHONY, AS HE DRIVES PAST HIS JOB AND DOESN'T LOOK BACK. MOVES ON, BURNING HIS BRIDGES AND LEAVING THE ASHES BEHIND.

Lyrics

Over hills of light down in valleys of shadow
Late at night when I’m all alone
I know this road, this road will carry me home
Sometimes I walk sometimes I run
From the early morning to the setting sun
Late at night when I’m all alone
I know this road, this road will carry me home
And this road has no end, for those who do believe
And it rises up so high, into the sky with no earthly bounds
Bridge:

Many friends have walked beside me
Some stayed behind some gone ahead
Into the golden sun where there is no pain
And I know some day we’re going to meet again
Late at night when I’m all alone
I know this road, this road will carry me home
I know this road, this road will carry me home

This song's message is one of Hope and Faith. Knowing that you have found the right path, remembering and thankful for friends that have gotten you to this point, those still here, and those that have" gone ahead". This song has a definite spiritual feel, culminating with the old Baptist Church backward hand claps at the end.
