500 Miles

Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

I woke up at 4am
Knowing what I needed to do
I had to find out if there was still hope
Or if we were through

Headed north bound to San Francisco
As the sun rose from the east
Carried on wheels of hope
Seeking love and peace

But as the miles stretched on for hours
It became clear to me
That sometimes being courageous
Borders on being crazy

I drove 500 miles
On a pilgrimage of hope
Hoping to salvage what was left of us
Before coming back home
But I never got to see you
Or hear your voice again
And I had to accept that sometimes things
Just come to an end

I drove 500 miles
On a pilgrimage of hope
‘Cuz I realize that love can only grow
Where energy flows
But the messages in the miles
Helped me know
That sometimes the only place to drive
Is straight back home

You silence said everything
And you wouldn’t give me time
I risked it all for love
Even though it broke this heart of mine

I gathered up all my strength
And put the tissues away
Then I turned my car around
And drove home the very next day

As the miles stretched on for hours
I let my angels lead the way
‘Cuz sometimes the only way to heal
Is to surrender and pray

I drove 500 miles
On a pilgrimage of hope
Hoping to salvage what was left of us
Before coming back home
But I never got to see you
Or hear your voice again
And I had to accept that sometimes things
Just come to an end

I drove 500 miles
On a pilgrimage of hope
‘Cuz I realize that love can only grow
Where energy flows
But the messages in the miles
Helped me know
That sometimes the only place to drive
Is straight back home

I drove 500 miles on a pilgrimage of hope
