16. The Nowhere

1919: The Ballad of Rexford
by Mark Lee Townsend



 

Iím traveling down the road
and going nowhere.
At least it seems that way
from
where I stand today
If wisdom really comes from
getting older
It doesnít feel like much has
come my way
Because I worked the same
job
everyday twenty years
Just to see it end up bankrupt
like the rest
And of course thereís nothing
left to show for trying
And no one has an answer
back
even when theyíre pressed
I swear Iíve hated sending
out my letters
Reaching out ďto whom it
may concernĒ
If they only knew me and my
good intentions
Theyíd see their way to get a
good return
Well, at least we had enough
to pay for weddings
My daughters are in
someone elseís hands
And when itís coming down
to
that only boy of mine
He thinks heíll make a living,
playing in a band
Iím going nowhere but up
from here
and the sun still shines in the
end
I still believe
Itís so hard to understand
the things Iíve been through
A wife who took an illness to
the grave
And I stood and watched her
as
she never asked for pity
Because she knew the end
would find her saved
You canít always come up
with
an explanation
For the things that we choose
to do or just ignore
And in the final moment
thereís
no regretting the decision
To open up your heart when
God is knocking at the door
Iím going nowhere but up
from here
and the sun still shines in the
end I still believe
Iím going nowhere but up
from here
and the sun still shines in the
end I still believe
Iím going nowhere but up
from here
and the sun still shines in the
end I still believe
