October Road

Late start, no time for fun
Lollipop lady made me run
A new plan and shoes to tie
There’s a rainbow up in the sky
The only thing that’s keeping me from that pot of gold
is down October road

Dark nights and riper days
Kick a doubt or two out the way
A long drive and a steep climb
I’m so tired but I say that I’m fine
The only thing that’s keeping me from breaking every mold
is down October road

Gonna drop a dream or two and keep my eyes ahead
There’s so much that I wanna do but I could sleep all day instead
Standing on this hill I see just how far we’ve come
Back there on the street
We could be

Bright sun please make me blind
To all of the failures I’m leaving behind
Those days won’t keep me warm
A shredded scarf or a heart that was torn
The only thing that’s keeping me from all that’s mine to hold
is down, down October road

keep on walking…..

The only thing that’s keeping me from what the future holds
is something I can almost see down October road
