CENTURY ROAD

I guess the drive didn’t take too long, ain’t been back since I was real young
This old house still looks about the same
Just down the road lived my best friend, don’t think i’ll see him again
‘Cause he took off for fortune and fame
It’s where we lived for adventure, a time when dreams didn’t end
I’ve got the scars to remind me, where we learned how to mend

A kid’s life ain’t what it once was, it’s hard to fight the good cause
‘Cause there’s so much mean, and it won’t go away
Say what you want, but don’t touch me, I may not win, but they’ll all see
That I ain’t afraid of what you’re throwing my way
It’s where I grew ten feet taller, where being just a boy came to end
I’ve got the scars to remind me, where we learned to defend

Believe in what it tells you, how everything deserves a little more
What takes us there together, remember falls that we took before
Winding through the countryside, I’m not even thinking ‘bout the next turn
And the passage is worn down from all the heavy loads
Been carried by the feet here before us
That walked here on Century Road

We drove around till the sun went down, ‘cause that’s the best time to fool around
We’ll pull off where there’s noone at all
First time for both of us here, little nervous, little bit of fear
We fumbled through it and the thrill of it all
It’s where we lost inhibitions, when we first became friends
I’ve got the scars to remind me, where we learned to pretend

Believe in what it tells you, how everything deserves a little more
It takes us there together, remember falls that we took before
Winding through the countryside, I’m not even fearing the next turn
And the traveler is worn down, but it’s not such a heavy load
Where you find you’re not the first or the last one
To venture down Century Road

Now make good time for coming days, stick around to walk the next mile
Look back when you need to, look ahead, it clears you for awhile
Winding through the countryside, we’re not afraid of the next turn
When it’s all said and done, and the story’s set to be told
We know every page is different at the end
But we all got there on Century Road
…Century Road
