"dusty road" by mike francis  

Posted by LiQuiDfiRe in , , ,



carry on
and bear the happy load
on a dusty road
gotta win the race
even though the road is hard
gotta be certain

like the black bird
flyin' in the night
what's he lookin' for
searchin' for the way
even though the road is hard
gotta be certain

it's a typical dream
that's neverendin'
burnin' inside of a soul
gotta follow this dream
and watch your bendin'

through the dark years
don't you stray away
from the dusty road
just keep it goin' on
even though the road is hard
gotta be certain

lots'a people are gonna put you down
does it bother you?
don't let them change your mind
even though the road is hard
gotta be certain

it's a typical dream
that's neverendin'
burnin' inside of a soul
gotta follow this dream
and watch your bendin'

typical dream
that's neverendin'
burnin' inside of a soul
gotta follow this dream
yeah...

and keep your feelings on the mood
when you know the fight is over
and you can't tell them all
if you wanna get where you're goin'
don't get dust on the road...

need no help now
gotta burn and have them know
loneliness forgotten
now am back on the road

gonna keep my feelings movin'
gonna keep it goin' on
leave the things forgotten
won't get dust on the road

steppin' down
movin' right along
loneliness forgotten
don't get lost on the road...

i saw the video of this song posted on a friend's facebook account and was surprised to learn that mike francis has died already 2 years ago... he died?!!! he was just 47. i am genuinely sad.... =(

mike francis is one of the artists who has been a part of my journey through music and life. i think i like almost all of his songs, and this is one of my favorites. i used to have a cassette tape copy of his songs, which reminds me that i have to add at least one of his albums to my list of "cds to buy." now i guess i won't have the chance to see him perform here in manila. now that i can already afford to go to concerts. yeah right...

well anyway, thank you for being with me through your songs, and helping me get through those times. now that you have gotten over your "dusty road," i hope you're now making angels singin' with you:

steppin' down
movin' right along
loneliness forgotten
don't get lost on the road...


arrivederci michele!!!
