The Open Highway, Enda Reilly 2007

“Dry your eyes my friend”, she said
“Take a stroll along the open highway
to where the lonely people go
when they don’t know where they’re going.”

And all the people travel on til when
Their lives find some meaning
And in the night I see her face again
But I don’t wanna lose that meanin’
No I don’t wanna lose that feelin’
Oh, I’ll take heed of what she said,
Of what she said, what she said

“So why don’t you try to forget me
and carry on with your short life,
for we are all so young and free
we have no cares, no strifes”

What she says it is so right
But I don’t wanna lose that feelin’
That I found within her eyes
No I don’t wanna lose that meanin’
I don’t wanna lose that feelin’
Oh, I’ll take heed of what she said,
Of what she said, what she said

Yeah, so “Dry your eyes my friend”, she said
“Take a stroll along the open highway
to where the lonely people go
when they don’t know where they’re going.
They don’t know where they’re going.
They don’t know where they’re going.
They don’t know where they’re going.”
