The books that you gave me
They had no pages
No picture book stories
To put inside my song

And the heroes you made me
They had no faces
No chiseled-jaw features
To carve my own on

And there’s a right road
And there’s a wrong, wrong road
And there’s a right road
And there’s a wrong, wrong road

So I dropped your book you held so high
Yeah I thought to question this belief
And I know you said you needed time
But I never thought you had the balls to leave

And there’s a right road
And there’s a wrong, wrong road
And there’s a right road
And there’s a wrong road, wrong road, wrong road

Yeah

I see your car come tumble down
And I know your future now
I see your car come tumble down
And watch the wheel go spinning round
I see your car come tumble down
I know your future now
I watch the wheel go spinning round
And I watch your future going down

And there’s a right road
And there’s a wrong, wrong road
And there’s a right road
And there’s a wrong road, wrong road, wrong road

Right road
Wrong road, wrong road
Right road
Wrong road, wrong road, wrong road

And I was a futureless fish ‘til you came along
Now I’m carved by your crown and loved by your song
And I feel that it’s right but I know that it’s wrong
Love and love and kind of respect for you I have for you is long gone

Right road
Wrong road, wrong road
Right road
Wrong road, wrong road, wrong road
Hey hey hey hey

I fell in love with a sweetheart song
And you can’t deny what is done is done
But you never never must have missed the fall

    General CommentThis song is about being left with bad memories at the end of a relationship, described perfectly in the first couple of verses. There is plenty of religious imagery in the song too, plenty of faith questioning statements.

    Put simply then, in life, in love and even in spirituality, every decision we make leads us down either a right road, or a wrong road. And it's not until we're at the end of the road that it becomes clear just which we were on.
