The Road Not Taken

(ChordSlinger n Lola)

Original song was written by Lex Zaleta. Music and lyrics were rewritten by ChordSlinger with permission and help from Lex.

The road was straight, from there to here;
We held no hate, we felt no fear.
The hand of fate had made it clear:
Don't hesitate, be of good cheer.

We both stopped, and held our breaths -
No secret signs, no hidden steps.

Don't go mistakin'
The road not taken
For that yellow brick road.
You'll find heartache 'n
Happiness waitin'
Any way that you go.
Any way that you go.

Now years have passed, and left us gray;
They came so fast, and crawled away.
Only love lasts, the rest decays.
The die was cast, and numbers our days.

The crooked trail has been revealed;
It's too late, our fate is sealed.

Don't go mistakin'
The road not taken
For that yellow brick road.
You'll find heartache 'n
Happiness waitin'
Any way that you go.
Any way that you go.
