This road walks long
As you reach for the charms of night’s heart
Flog down another ride
And head for another sky’s new spark
You need it cause it’s all you want now tonight
The road of diamonds blind her out of sight now tonight

The further you stride
The magnet of her eyes restrain you
You feel the heavy weight
As your lonesome heartache floors you
Unconscious in your winded mind you cry
You’re counted out before the prize
Has had a chance to steal your eyes

Suddenly you figure out
The picture fades along with the sounds
When she’s not around, when she’s not around
I need her to lay me down

I found my way home
And I walked a bad road to your heart
Your heart’s an empire
But all I desire is just one spark
I need you cause you’re all I have now tonight

    General CommentThe third line is "Flag down another ride"!!

    If you were to flog someone they probably wouldn't give you a ride!!

    General CommentI think this is about someone feeling lonely, either literally or emotionally and wishing they could be with someone they love but can't.
