  1. Back Roads

From the recording for Karrie

Lyrics

Written by: Mark Brine
 
1.I wandered down the back roads last nite Deep into the sleeping hands of timeBack to the home that we once knew and I saw a fleeting glimpse (there) of you in your school uniform with your long blonde hair ‘n that tie you used to wearAnd we were pals once againIn those few short moments lost in spaceAnd I remember feeling just so overwhelmed At simply seein' your little faceAnd I ran my hand across your head (for good luck) Like I always used t' do way back then As you showed me your drawing of a truck And in that moment, the dream came to an end
Chorus:  Back roads - back roads Down the back roads of (2.in) timeBack roads - back roads Down the back roads of my (2.your) mind
2. It’s sad how the paths of life just strayFathers and sons how they go their separate waysYes, I realize it’s all the Master's planHe molds you in His hands - you've become a full grown manBut, I only hope that one day in your travels No matter where the road may go 'n how the tale unravelsYes, somewhere when you stop to look behind You'll know I'll always be there down the back roads of your mind
