two roads lyrics – chris rea

ain’t it funny how
you never can tell
it always seems to hit you
when it’s going so well
a little knowledge is a dangerous thing
now it’s “lawyers-at-midnight”
and the learning begins…
let’s take a walk outside
in the morning sun
there ain’t no working out
no battles to be won
oh darling, take a look at you and me
we both love our freedom
and we’ll always be
two roads
you can wait a lifetime for the hammer to fall
some folks get lucky
they don’t see it at all
we were bound to drift away
from the very first day
two different journeys
and neither was wrong
let’s take a walk outside
in the morning sun
there ain’t no working out
no battles to be won
oh darling take a look at you and me
we both love our freedom
and we’ll always be
two roads
two different lifetimes, we just happened to meet
traded some “good times” on the corner of the street
we were no more than strangers attracted to one
and the same sense of freedom
but we’d always be on
two roads
