Roam

Story Behind The Song

This song was written during a time in my life when I was figuring out my career goals and the important relationships in my life (romantic and friendships). Letters were written, words were said, and this song is the story.

Song Description

"All who roam are not lost". Life is sometimes a process of elimination. In order to figure out what makes us truly happy and fulfilled, we sometimes must do things or be in relationships that do not make us happy (though at first, we may not know it). But we have to keep living, searching, loving, and roaming.

Lyrics

ROAM
V1:
We always sit and talk about the weather
And after all these letters well there's nothing left to say
And you and I we're both two of a kind
We're always wondering why
Something more hasn't come our way
Pre Chorus:
But I refuse to believe
This is the only life for me

CHORUS:
So I roam
These open roads
The nights are bitter
And the days are cold
So I roam
These open roads
In search of better
In search of home

V2:
You seem surprised I see it in your eyes
But I can't lie
This was never what I had in mind
And walking this line pretending everything's fine
Well this isn't living it's just getting by
Pre Chorus:
And I maybe naïve
But not too proud to leave

CHORUS:
So I roam
These open roads
The nights are bitter
And the days are cold
So I roam
These open roads
In search of better
In search of home
