You give me a reason to quit the drinking
and i'll give you a million more
to get afraid
the fear is everywhere
and you've seen it before
seen it got all built up in my eyes
you lost your nerve
the swagger has gone
you want none of this

As bright city lights
make us close our eyes
and have sweet dreams of darkness
this is no place for fear
so suck it all up
and pass the bottle
tonight we'll drink to the past
and bury ourselves in the morning

This road
the old road
the familiar road
feels like home but we're not quite there yet

Face to face with my fear
my eyes now clear
I know what I must do
forgetting you's not the issue
it's forgiving myself

In the end
you've taken nothing worth holding onto
so keep that time
keep that pride
sooner or later you'll realise
there is a light that never goes out

But it's been so long
since I recognised
my own face
or the man i've become
though i know at last
on this road
i belong

Time has been strange
always never ending
and you'll never let go
yeah, time has been strange
but you'll never let go

One day my dreams will meet my fears
take a piece of me
make a brand new start
i'll have to want it and my heart can feel no shame
