Two Highways

Two highways lay before me
Which one would I choose?
Down one lane I'd find happiness
And down the other I would lose
There is no one that I can trust
I must decide alone
My decision is an awful one
Which road will take me home?

In the mornin' would I wake to find
Down the wrong road I had gone?
Will I hear the melodies
I've searched for oh so long
Only time will tell
If I have made a loser's choice
Hello sadness, cries my inner soul
Goodbye lover, moans my voice.

Perils today are many
As I set out on my way
If I lose your love, I know that
I can't call it back someday
Rambler, lonely rambler
Just calls any place his home
But Nashville's lights...
How beautiful you shine.

Wishing now that you had found
A word or two to say
But the morning came and we both knew
My eyes gave it away
As I kissed your cheeks and said goodbye
I thought, 'only time will tell'
And you can't draw water from an empty well.

In the mornin' would I wake to find
Down the wrong road I had gone?
Will I hear the melodies
I've searched for oh so long
Only time will tell
If I have made a loser's choice
Hello sadness, cries my inner soul
Goodbye lover, moans my voice.
