 There are no roads – Donovan

Donovan1970ThereAreNoRoads1

A beautiful song written by Donovan and recorded during the Open Road Sessions in 1970 but never released officially. He will be 70 in May 2016! Where does the time go ?  This is dedicated to anyone who is feeling a little lost and uncertain of the way ahead.

 There are no roads
Roads are made by walking
There are no words
To tell a friend the way
There’s only you
And you can make your dreams come true
By what you do, not what you say

There are no clues
To find the hidden treasure
No certainty
You’ll win this game you play
There’s only you
And you can make your dreams come true
By what you do, not what you say

You’re such a fine person
You think you failed
Honey, don’t hide that feeling
It’s a lesson unveiled
Own up and be forgiven
Maybe then changes flow
Contemplate no man’s sorrow
You have your own, you know

There is a cure
For what it is that ails you
There is a balm
To soothe your cares away
It is in you
Only you make the dreams come true
By what you do, not what, not what you say

There are no roads
Roads are made by walking
There are no words
To tell a friend the way
There’s only you
And you can make your dreams come true
By what you do, not what you say
