The Path
Final Draft- Updated 06/07/05 9:18 am. I decided to shorten the name to just "The Path". The back up vocals have some distortion and the intro has some synth. The drums have changed...for the better.

Story behind the song
Watch out for the other guy! Well, in this case "girl". I was going through some rough times with my ex-girlfriend. The memory of her constant infidelity along with my ignorance and lack of concern. A lot of the song is sarcastic. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I eventually learn to accept everything for the way it is and go on with my life. Discovering that life is a lesson that you learn during the span of one's own life experiences.
I can still taste the pain The memory still remains To live inside all this time And even though I never tried You never know I could have lied And acted like the whole thing never happened I take it back You were right It was all just in my head No doubt You believe I’m the one That sleeps beside you in the bed And when I kiss your lips I can feel it all melt away You can forget about all the bad things I said I never meant them anyway [chorus] I am but one man who Remains to walk alone To find the path that leads The path that leads to home Every time you speak my name I hope it hurts you just the same So that you can feel my pain The things I do the games I play It doesn’t matter what people say I will never change my ways One day I will find What I've been lookin' for You never know what lies On the other side of the door And when I rest my head In the place that I call home I will remember to stick To the right path that I was shown [chorus]
