Road Trip, Melissa Taggart

Open Road (I Gotta Stay Strong)

The open road calls me
A mysterious song
I stare off into the distance
And I wonder how long
It'd take for the world to see
How long I've been gone
But that road will have to wait
I gotta stay strong

Another dark morning
Of another small life
I make myself coffee
And put away the knife
I hold back the tears
Cuz I gotta be a good wife
The road it beckons and now I know
I'm livin' a lie

We hear your words
And they tear us up inside
Don't you know our children listen
Do you hear them when they cry?
A country torn from the inside out
Has all our love died?
Let's take the road together
And run away from all the lies
