Inspiration Road Continues …

Been an interesting week on this song.  I struggled to find the transition from verse to chorus.  The verse is emotionally low and I wanted the chorus to be more positive, filled with possibility. After several days of sitting with pen in hand, listening for the answer, it came.  The line “A voice says run the red light”  showed up on the page and I think it is working.

V1:

I’m lost on the streets

I’ve driven down for years

Gutters heaped with regret

 
My eyes on the rearview

I’m looking at what’s past

Heartache in stark silhouette

 

The street signs are Gargoyles

Laughing as I pass

Point toward traps and dead ends

 

I’m strapped in my small life

Ashtray full of doubts

Burned up dreams I cannot mend  OR  Questioning just who I am  OR Question am I good enough  OR  Ask if I’m real or pretend

 CHORUS

A voice says

run the red light

Let destiny unfold

Find who you were meant to be

On Inspiration Road

 

This road is

Your life’s journey

Put the top down take it slow

Dreams painted on the center line

On Inspiration Road

 
This road, this road, this road is Inspiration Road

Your road is Inspiration Road
