The Hardest Road To Travel

THE HARDEST ROAD TO TRAVEL - Written by Carroll Bryant



When I think of how we were
I fall victim to myself
I didn’t care how much it hurt
For every heaven tastes of hell

But I poured it out for you
And this you need to know
From the seed of just one glance
A feeling had to grow

If only I had known
Of course I didn’t know

That the hardest road to travel
Is the day you said goodbye
When everything unraveled
There was nothing left in your eyes
And the quickest ones to follow
Were the ones who couldn’t see
Breaking up is never easy
It was the end of everything

Everything to me

I want to give that way again sometime
Just I like did before
I want to give my love and then to find
I want to give a little bit more

This is the lesson that I learned
So at least I realize
When you bleed to death tomorrow
You’ll have the map to paradise

If only there were warnings
There never seems to be a sign

That the hardest road to travel
Is the day you said goodbye
When everything unraveled
There was nothing left in your eyes
And the quickest ones to follow
Were the ones who couldn’t see
Breaking up is never easy
It was the end of everything

Everything to me

This is my own confession
No matter how late that it comes
I know it’s no consolation
But you were really the only one

This is of my own doing
To myself I always burn
So I ask for your forgiveness
To the lesson I have learned

This is the lesson that I learned

That the hardest road to travel
Is the day you said goodbye
When everything unraveled
There was nothing left in your eyes
And the quickest ones to follow
Were the ones who couldn’t see
Breaking up is never easy
It was the end of everything

The hardest road to travel
Is the one you let pass by
When the road you’re on is gravel
It never makes for an easy ride
And the smartest ones to ponder
Are the ones who aren’t in need
Breaking up is never easy
It was the end of everything

Everything to me
