I'm tired just kicking my heels at home
Waiting for the phone to ring
Anything but sit around and play
The electric drum away
No audience applause - they can't see through doors

But I gotta get back on the road
Life is like a heavy stone around my neck
If I can't hit the deck
Back on the road,
turn on my guitar and empty all the pain
and play for you again

The world's a stage, and I am just a player
Waiting for my turn to wear the crown
The world's a stage, and I am just a player
You cut my strings, and I fall down.

Playing with yourself
Can set you blind to everything you hear
Blind from ear to ear
I'm going crazy being lazy
I find myself forgetting who I am
Maybe I'm a mad man

But I gotta get back on the road
Life is like a heavy stone around my neck
If I can't hit the deck
Back on the road
Turn on my guitar and empty all the pain
And play to you again

Back on the road
Life is like a heavy stone around my neck
If I can't hit the deck
Back on the road
Turn on my guitar and empty all the pain
And play to you again
