Lyrics

Just Up The Road
Pete Sallis

Just up the road
There are news trucks all lined up
Cameras out putting on a circus show
For a sad sad fool who shot up a school
And now innocent eyes are forever closed

Just up the road
There are fathers and mothers
Picking out sunday best clothes
For their children to be buried in
To say goodbye and not one more hello

Just up the road
All the hurting will heal
A peace we will all feel
But down here we’re all left to believe in hope
Until the madness all stops
All that we got
Is each other to help fix what we’ve broke

Just up the road
Are packed churches and bars
Trying to drown and lift up lost souls
But they’re just a day to day temporary band aid
Until the day we all make it home

Just up the road
All the hurting will heal
A peace we will all feel
But down here we’re all left to believe in hope
Until the madness all stops
All that we got
Is each other to help fix what we’ve broke

Just up the road
Another sun will rise again
So love the ones you’re with and hold them close
Live a life every day to leave this world a better place
For them until we go
Just up the road
