The Other Side of Nowhere

by Rob Roper 1st Draft February 11, 2009

You walk through this world
but you can't find your song
Doing what you should
not what you want
And the last time I saw you
you were drunk on despair
I'll be waiting on the other side of nowhere.

You talk of your dreams
with a frown and a sneer
You've been living the wrong way
for so many years
And you say that you're trapped
but the answer's right there
I'll be waiting on the other side of nowhere.

Drive down the freeway
Stare at the grey
You like to complain
But you don't like to pray
You could take the next exit
But you don't dare
I'll be waiting on the other side of nowhere.

(I'll record the song and put it on my demo site so you can hear the melody. www.myspace.com/robroperdemos)
