One for the road…

Standard

You live by your reality

And there’s nothing else

This talk about life and love

Yeah, it don’t make sense

The books of dusty reason

Line up your shaky shelf

But even in the light of day

You can’t find yourself

 

So here’s one for the road

Here’s one to your health

Here’s one to the these words

And the cards that we’re dealt

Let’s drink to you tonight

 

These trips down memory lane

The ones you always take

Wipe the frowns from the faces

Replace them with smiles so fake

You sum up these old stories

In lines so clear; so succinct

But can’t wash away those wounds

Yeah the ones that time did inflict

 

So here’s one for the road

Here’s one to your health

Here’s one to the these words

And the cards that we’re dealt

Let’s drink to you tonight

 

Now when you wander down the valley

As we all must someday do

There lie wicked little charms

Of a temptation new

You can riddle through this reason

Talk about each and every fear

But as much as you may sow it up

You know you’ll still see the tear

 

So here’s one for the road

Here’s one to your health

Here’s one to the these words

And the cards that we’re dealt

Here’s one to your love

One to life itself

One to your name

One more to this game

Let’s drink to you tonight
