Lyrics:

100 Miles of Hard Road (Matt Reno)

Well I followed the river right down to the sea
A mysterious figure was beckoning me
And I cried out 'Can this day of reckoning not be delayed?'
He said 'the papers have been signed and preparations have been made.'

Narcissus once knelt here down by the pool
So you see what comes of just playing it cool.
I peered inside but I could see nothing at all. 'Is this just a dream?' I enquired
Well he said 'It's just too close to call.'

I got a hundred miles of hard road ahead, I gotta find a place to rest my head
I got the stars for a roof and the earth for a bed and a hundred miles of hard road ahead
And I must be alive 'cause I'm only half dead and there's a hundred miles of hard road ahead

Well I fell to my knees as the storm it raged, the sky turned as black as the ace of spades
And I prayed that some kind of awful mistake had been made.
But this is the hand you've been dealt, and the cards they must be played.

I came to on some empty beach, the sun gently warmed me 'till life was in reach
And I gathered up my senses, let it be known…
I held a mirror up to the world
And then I watched it turn to stone.

I got a hundred miles of hard road ahead, I gotta find a place to rest my head
I got the stars for a roof and the earth for a bed, and I know I'm alive 'cause I'm only half dead
I got a hundred miles of hard road straight up ahead.

And I must be alive 'cos I'm only half dead, and there's a hundred miles of hard road ahead
Hold on my brother, hold on my sister too (x3)
