"Song For The Road" as written by and David Ford....
Well the day cast down
Lengthy shadows on unfamiliar towns
I drove 300 miles from the place I call home
And I tip my hat to the angel of the north

And the sun it set fire to the heavens
On the hills over sheffield tonight
As I sail over this countryside with new friends and old
We are nowhere, but man we're alright

So you can keep your belief in whatever
I wear my cynicism like a tattoo
And while poets try to engineer definitions of love
You know all I can think of is you

And I cant wait to see you on Sunday
Far from the traffic and the smoke and the noise
For this evening I will play back every message that you sent
So I can sleep to the sound of your voice

Now I don't like to use words like 'forever'
But I will love you till the end of today
And in the morning when I remember everything that you are
I know ill fall for you over again

I know someday this all will be over
And it's hard to say what most will I miss
Just give me one way to spend my last moments alive
And I choose this, I choose this, I choose this
I choose this, I choose this, I choose this
I choose this, I choose this
I choose this

    General CommentThis song is simply amazing.
    It completely blows me away.

    So you can keep your belief in whatever
    I'll wear my cynicism like a tattoo
    While poets try to engineer definitions of love
    You know all I can think of is you

    WOW.

    General CommentNow I don't like using words like forever
    But I will love you til the end of today
    And in the morning when I remember everything that you are
    I know I'll fall for you over again

    I know someday this all will be over
    And it's hard to say what most I will miss
    Just give me one way to spend my last moments alive
    And I'll choose this, I'll choose this, I'll choose.

    - amazing. just amazing. such love. such beauty.
    something that we can only hope everyone finds one day.

    General Commentriley490, as far as I know this song hasn't been recorded yet, but it'll probably be on the next album when it's eventually released :-)

    Amazing. Im trying my best to get the word about David Ford and his music. I first heard this song on Last Call with Carson Daily.

    Im still trying to pinpoint the EXACT meaning behind it. It seems to have multiple meanings at one time.

    General CommentWhen a song is able to capture a few elements of love in a completely original way, it grabs a hold of me and won't let go. People have hit the nail on the head: "While poets try to engineer definitions of love, You know all I can think of is you"
    We all know how true this is.
