The Road Is Always Longer

Track 3 on Back Seat

I was at a retreat in the Pacific Northwest and was on a trail one morning that never seemed to end. It occurred to me that I was so focused on getting to the end that I wasn’t enjoying the journey. The phrase “The road is always longer when you’re searching for the end” came from that day. The song was written in an off-grid cabin in the woods. This was my 2nd writing session in the cabin, and then day before I slid and fell on a hike. I was forced to wear a leg brace for the entire time I was in the beautiful wilderness, only able to sit on the back porch instead of getting out for a hike or walk. The rest of the chorus came from that experience “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger if that lesson we befriend. The past is not the future it can’t define us don’t you know. So let it go, let it slide and keep on grooving, on the inside.” The song is about enjoying life’s journey no matter what the circumstances!

Lyrics

Searching for the black and white
But missing all the hues
Accents are the spice of life
Though rarely do we choose

Caught up in the moment
Is it right or is it wrong
If we focus on the present
We’ll find the space where we belong

The road is always longer
when we’re searching for the end
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger
If those lessons we befriend

But the past is not the future
It can’t define us don’t you know
So let it go
Let it slide
And keep on groovin’
On the inside

Pushing past the limit
In the outer banks we’ll see
The beauty steeped within it
As we struggle to break free

The picture ever changing
As we twist and turn the view
There’s a brilliance overhanging
When we look at life anew

The road is always longer
when we’re searching for the end
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger
If those lessons we befriend

But the past is not the future
It can’t define us don’t you know
So let it go
Let it slide
And keep on groovin’
On the inside

But never stand outside the shine
It’s In that essence we align
In our truth we’ll be defined
To ourselves we must be kind
And we’ll find a piece of mind

The road is always longer
when we’re looking for the end
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger
If those lessons we befriend

But the past is not the future
It can’t define us don’t you know
So let it go
Let it slide
And keep on groovin’
Keep on groovin’
Gotta keep on groovin’
On the inside
Keep on, keep on, keep on groovin’
Keep on, keep on, keep on groovin’
Gotta keep on, keep on groovin’
Keep on
Ooh, keep on groovin’
On the inside
