You've been grinding out the days, miles and galleys in your palm
Spending all of your down time playing amber solitaire
Wearing nothing but long sleeves to hide the scars in your arms
From the shivered fuzz of burning skin with cigarettes
If you're looking down a hole each time you peer out of the blinds
I can tell you right now sir that there are still some who care
When notes fall like silver and the words ring true like time
Your life is not this lonely night, the road is not your only friend

You watched the pivot and the swing candle lit in that bar
Rolled and tumbled the hall at evening's end
On an April Monday night in Cedar Rapids Iowa
Your life is not this lonely night, the road is not your only friend
Your life is not this lonely night, the road is not your only friend

The fog of imitators might blow on through your eyes some nights
But they couldn't touch you sitting on the wall at
Tailem Bend
She shared your last cigarette lord, she was such a sight
Your path splits every way from here, the road is not your only friend
Your path splits every way from here, the road is not your only friend
Your life is not this lonely night, the road is not your only friend
Your life is not this lonely night, the road is not your only friend
