Crossroads (Don MacLean)

I've got nothing on my mind
Nothing to remember
Nothing to forget
I've got nothing to regret
But I'm all tied up on the inside
No-one knows quite what I've got
And I know that on the outside
What I used to be - I'm not

You know I've heard about people like me
But I never made the connection
They walk one road to set them free
And find they've gone the wrong direction
But there's no need for turning back
'cause all roads lead to where I stand
And I believe I'll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned

Can you remember who I was
Can you still feel it
Can you find my pain
Can you heal it
And lay your hands upon me now
And cast this darkness from my soul
You alone can light my way
You alone can make me whole
Once again

We've walked both sides of ev'ry street
Through all kinds of windy weather
But that was never our defeat
As long as we could walk together
So there's no need for turning back
'cause all roads lead to where we stand
And I believe we'll walk them all
No matter what we may have planned


It is to three men I owe my guitar playing(such as it is): my father, my friend Saul Bradford, and Don MacLean (he of American Pie.) Would love to wax misty on the subject, but its time for me to go and watch the sumo in a different store.
