"Same Road" as written by Liz Rose and Mary Gauthier....
My silence betrays me
Lets the demons take a hold
The truth always saves me
When there's nowhere else to go

When you flirt with the shadows
Darkness snakes under your skin
The only way back home
Is let the light of truth back in

I know you see it in my eyes
I know you know where I've been
So it's hard to understand
Why you'd take me there again

I'll come back to get you
But baby, I can't stay
The same road that brought me to you
Is gonna carry me away

I've come so far to stand here
I've earned this solid ground
I'll fight to keep you with me
But I won't let you take me back down

It scares me to death
To know what I need
I'm brave enough to love you
Brave enough to leave

I know you see it in my eyes
I know you know where I've been
So it's hard to understand
Why you'd take me there again

I'll come back to get you
But baby, I can't stay
The same road that brought me to you
Is gonna carry me away

I know you see it in my eyes
I know you know where I've been
So it's hard to understand
Why you'd take me there again

I'll come back to get you
But baby, I can't stay
The same road that brought me to you
Is gonna carry me away

I'll come back to get you
But baby, I can't stay
The same road that brought me to you
Is gonna carry me away

    General CommentI think this song is about a recovering addict and/or alcoholic trying to rescue a lover from addiction, or about the predicament of their co-dependent relationship. It sounds like they were together when they were both abusing substances, and now the protagonist has recovered and knows that her own well-being has to trump the relationship. So she will help the lover one last time, but then she must move on.

    It's a beautiful song. She's fabulously talented and should be more well-known.
