Hi All.

I have been away from these forums for a while, but in the interim I started writing a bit again. This one's about a breakup. Any and all comments are welcome.


THESE OLD ROADS


V.1: Friendly houses watch me
Each time I walk on by
The cattle in the meadow knows me well
The wind is slowly changing
I think of all that's gone
The gravel now has one more tale to tell.

Chorus: We should have walked these old roads together
With seagulls listening in the sky
With the sun, the fields and the heather
These old roads would have helped us say goodbye.

V.2.: Out of new beginnings
Or maybe out of heart
Too weary to get up for one more try
A million miles between us
If one thing could be changed
This is where we should have let it die.

Chorus: We should have walked these old roads together
With seagulls listening in the sky
With the sun, the fields and the heather
These old roads would have helped us say goodbye.

Bridge: I think of how we started
And how this came to pass
Sorrow cuts my mind like broken glass

Chorus,
Diff key: We should have walked these old roads together
With seagulls listening in the sky
With the sun, the fields and the heather
These old roads would have helped us say goodbye.

Repeat: These old roads would have helped us say.....
Goodbye.


End.
