the road to emmaus lyrics – jason upton

have you ever said goodbye to a hero
have you ever had to lay away your dreams
have you ever been so lonely that a strangers your best friend
then you’ll know what i mean

so this is our highway to heaven
our american dream
the two fools on the road to emmaus
well they might as well be you and me

have you ever been angry at your country
have you ever been angry at your god
have you ever been so angry
that you can’t see what you’ve got right in front of you

have you ever been distracted by the homeless
have you ever thrown your dollar with disgust
have you ever thought the great commissions just too great a cost
have you ever played the fool

/ jason upton lyrics
