lyrics

Every Road

Stroll down the avenue
Walk the boulevard
March in the streets
And the promenade
Traffic in the thoroughfare
Range the interstate
Cruising on the highway
Drift the parade

All you’ve really got to know
Is that every road leads back home
Yeah all you’ve really got to know
Is that every road leads back home

Driving on broadway
Every row, lane and path
Wandering the turnpike
Roaming the bypass
Travel every course
Explore each route
Crescents and cul-de-sacs
An endless pursuit

All you’ve really got to know
Is that every road leads back home
Yeah all you’ve really got to know
Is that every road leads back home

Blood on the tracks on the car stereo
On the long winding road out of Kenepuru
I’d just finished the Luminaries – finally – the night before
As the song came on I said to you
That the Evening Standard had compared the book
To Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts
You asked if that was a valid thing to say
And I said I didn’t know
But I took their point
Noting the layers and complexities
As I wondered aloud
Is it more difficult to achieve in 5 short minutes or 800 long pages
