(I'm Running To) A Long Road

This song was written as a meditation on graduating from college and the freaky/exciting feeling that one feels from having NO IDEA what one is to do with the rest of one's life.

I'm sure many of you can relate.


I grew up in the North of the city
the cold winds blow but the winter's pretty
then I moved over here to the land of the pines
it rains and rains, most of the time

And I don’t see much of my friends back home
summer comes, but summer goes
and I miss my mom and her
mashed potatoes

But its a long road, its a long road
im running to

I don’t got much except this old guitar
Don’t got a TV or a brand new car
but I got a diploma that costs twice as much
Can’t complain about my girlfriend cause she'll hear this

Its a long road, its a long road
im running to

Now lets be real for a second or two
I’m not poor and neither are you
So we’ve got some time to figure this out
How to make it work and what’s it all about

Cause its a long road, its a long road
we’re running to

What we gonna do?
