On the road that I have taken,
one day, walking, I awaken,
amazed to see where I have come,
where I’m going, where I’m from.This is not the path I thought.
This is not the place I sought.
This is not the dream I bought,
just a fever of fate I’ve caught.
I’ll change highways in a while,at the crossroads, one more mile.
My path is lit by my own fire.
I’m going only where I desire.On the road that I have taken,
one day, walking, I awaken.
One day, walking, I awaken,
on the road that I have taken.
