Rules of the Road
written by Gary Marks © 1990 Arewea Co. ASCAP

I remember rebel kind of eyes
and how you'd take the challenge on and win.
You whispered me promises.
I never trusted much back then.

Many years a thousand miles away
I can see that all we did was hide.
If love's a treasure map
we tried to read between the lines.

Some just take what they have and see what's before their eyes.
Some are haunted by time and every wish that passes by.
Well I'm tired of the fight, I've just got to let things go
and I'm hoping I can find my peace with the rules of the road.

I think of you whenever I think back
and it's clear to me now I put myself here.
I see I made you leave me,
I left way before you did.

Some just take what they have and see what's before their eyes.
Some are haunted by time and every wish that passes by.
Well I'm tired of the fight, I've just got to let things go
and I'm hoping I can find my peace with the rules of the road.

I loved the way you touched, the half a smile, the secret looks.
If I could turn back the time. If only time was all it took.

Solo

Maybe I've learned some things out here.
So much of our own fate we choose
and there's no road I've seen where anyone outruns the truth.

Some just take what they have and see what's before their eyes.
Some are haunted by time and every wish that passes by.
Well I'm tired of the fight, I've just got to let things go
and I'm hoping I can find my peace with the rules of the road.
