lyrics

I paved this road with good intent
I paved this road with good intent
My back is broken and my body’s spent
But I paved this road, I paved this road with good intent

Now these flames do burn, these flames do burn
My heart is blistered cause I never learned
And my hands are mangled from the tricks I’ve turned
These flames do burn, oh yes, these flames do burn

My work is long and my mouth is dry
My eyes too weak to see that sky
I meant no harm, baby, when I lied
My work is long, my work is long and my mouth is dry

And the path is hidden on this blacktop road
My feet leave no mark of my wanderin’ soul
And I’ll take this tunnel over that light
Cause that sun it blinds me
Oh that sun is much too bright

And I hear that call, yes, I hear that call
I got no fight left in me, I’ve lost it all
Hand over fist, baby, I will crawl
Cause I hear that call, oh yes, I hear that call

And the path is hidden on this blacktop road
My feet leave no mark of my wanderin’ soul
And I’ll take this tunnel over that light
Cause that sun it blinds me
Oh that sun is much too bright

I won’t look back when the world dies
I’ll walk this blacktop with my head held high
Now I know it burns, but at least I tried
I won’t look back, I won’t look back when this world dies

Cause I paved this road with good intent
I paved this road with good intent
Now my back is broken and my body’s spent
I paved this road, I paved this road with good intent
