Lyrics

Walkin' down a lonely road
No one around, I'm all alone
I just need someone to talk to along the way (the way)


The moon is full, the stars shinin' bright
Roamin' free with no direction in sight
I just need someone to laugh with along the way (the way)


Well I'm lost here out on my own
Aimlessly I begin to roam
Where I end up (well who knows)


Lookin' for a reason to get out tonight
Lookin' for somethin' that makes me feel right
Right (Right on)


Runnin' away from my fears tonight
Leavin' those I love most behind
They won't miss me anyway
Tomorrow will be another day (Yeah)


Well I'm so far away from home
This unfamiliar road I continue to roam
Maybe one day I'll find my way outta here


Days go by, sleepless nights
Slowly but surely I'm loosin' my mind
If I stay away much longer, I'll probably break down inside


Runnin' scared on the streets tonight
This way of life just don't seem right
Lost and lonely out on my own
Wish that I could find my way home


Find my way home
Find my way
Find my way home
Find my way


Runnin' scared on the streets tonight
This way of life just don't seem right
Lost and lonely out on my own
Wish that I could find my way home


Well I'm driftin' away inside my mind tonight
Can't see ahead 'cause I'm loosin' sight
Loosin' sight of reality


Maybe one day I might find my way
forget all my troubles and get on my way
Just maybe, one of these days


Makin' my way back home tonight
I know everythings gonna be alright
I was lost and lonely out on my own
Now I'm finally on my way home


On my way home
On my way home
On my way home
On my way home
