lyrics

Every year in December, since I was a boy
wanderlust tears at my roots
Top a hill, by a river, under a tree
flights of fancy would carry me
But the weather was changing, the rain beating down
and the fire you lit warmed my bones
So on the road that I should have walked
dust never rose

Every year I remember, still just a boy
trading my dreams for a plan
On a plane, or a steamboat, far 'cross the sea
I had promised myself I would be
Though the weather was raging, the rain beating down
and the shelter you built kept me dry
Oh, the road that I should have walked
calling me now

The price to be paid for decisions I made
is a thousand sleepless nights.
Walking around old London town
was I ever truly happy?

Now the years ran before me, I'm not a boy
wanderlust tore out my roots
Top the hill, by the river - I used to dream
but I see now, it's just a stream
And the weather keeps raging, the rain beating down
as I ache for a fire I knew
Oh, the road that I should have walked
dusty and cold

The price to be paid for decisions I made
is a thousand sleepless nights.
Walking around old London town
was I ever truly happy?
