looking back at lonely

© words and music :   garnett betts

fell from the edge of broken hearted

love echoed from the canyon walls

when you’re lost you turn around

every time that love calls

that canyon floor was your highway

that long walk your masterpiece

you stumble over every question

‘till the rocks give you release

chorus :

and you’re

looking back at lonely

higher than you’ve ever been

from way up there

you see so clear

the world’s so wide and the road so thin

maybe you’re just hitching

at the edge of your own highway

‘till love comes on

picks you up

makes that lonely road a memory

and you’re looking back at lonely

took a share of disappointment

a side of lost your way

a wiser man

might have been more careful

but that’s just not you today

can’t fight

where life’s work takes you

can’t fight

love that never stayed

but it never hurts just asking

‘cause love might pick you up

                                             one day

chorus :

and you’re

looking back at lonely

higher than you’ve ever been

from way up there

you see so clear

the world’s so wide and the road so thin

maybe you’re just hitching

at the edge of your own highway

‘till love comes on

picks you up

makes that lonely road a memory

and you’re looking back at lonely

bridge :

   when beaten up lost and lonely

   are the tools of your hearts trade

   every stone cold question

   holds the key to where  you’ve been

   and how to find your way again

chorus :

looking back at lonely

higher than you’ve ever been

from way up there

you see so clear

the world’s so wide and the road so thin

maybe we’re  just hitching

at the edge of our own highway

‘till love comes on

picks you up

makes that lonely road a memory

and you’re looking back at lonely

looking back, looking back  –  at lonely
