lyrics

I've been running so long that my feet are barely keeping up with me
I've felt the sting of a life that's lived in fear
I've wondered far too long who I should be.

But nothing ever goes as planned
Sometimes the mirror shows a different man
But the road that's paved in pain has given me my name
I'll never have to ask for it again. No I'll never have to ask for it again

I've seen beauty on this road
Still I can feel this curse living in my bones
I built a city with the strength of my right hand
With a kiss I've brought it down again

But nothing ever goes as planned
Sometimes the mirror shows a different man
But the road that's paved in pain has given me my name
I'll never have to ask for it again. No I'll never have to ask for it again

If I could change one thing well, I don't know if I would
Cause this road has made me who I am and I'm a better man

So when I get the urge to run I just tell my feet "my running days are done"
The price was paid and it bought me who I am
And I'll never have to ask for it again, No I'll never have to ask for it again.

But nothing ever goes as planned
Sometimes the mirror shows a better man
But the road that's paved in pain has given me my name
I'll never have to ask for it again. No I'll never have to ask for it again
