lyrics

A New Road

Now that the shop is closed
They don't need us anymore.
I will carve out a new road
With the tools left by those
Who went before.

A simple truth, plainly told,
If you have love let it be known.
If you're holding on to hatred old
I hope you know who you're holding for.

You were the master tradesman then,
I was, I am, the apprentice still.
How I leaned to every word,
You always treated me just like a king.

A simple truth, plainly told,
If you have love let it be known.
If you're holding on to hatred old
I hope you know who you're holding for.

In the corner by the window
You took my spine and made me strong,
Within earshot of the river,
"You've got to keep on moving,
to belong".

A simple truth, plainly told,
If you have love let it be known.
If you're holding on to hatred old
I hope you know who you're holding for.
