No easy road

Across the path a tangled hedge has grown
There is no gate or style to let you through
And nobody will tell you what to do
It’s not an easy road to walk alone

You look around and all your friends have flown
But there’s one face that doesn’t turn away
Two lips to kiss and dreams that gently say
It’s not an easy road to walk alone

Quite like a dog who won’t give up his bone
Throughout it all somebody holds your hand
Life starts to work when others understand
It’s not an easy road to walk alone

Across the path a tangled hedge has grown
It’s not an easy road to walk alone
