English Lyrics: Adam Pulver
I initially fell in love with this song after watching the movie, but it took me awhile to get around to writing the lyrics for it. The first attempt at it didn't seem that great, and I kept it hidden away for awhile. But eventually, I decided to give it another shot. It turns out that all I had to do was fix a few lines in the verses and rewrite the bridge in order to make it passable. Just don't call it "yet another CCS song," as this is one of the special ones.

The Endless Road

There was an old song I called my own.
It's on a tape I used to play.
Sure there were a few scratches, bumps,
And print on the cover that
Was all but faded away.

Now another day starts; the same routine.
Every day breathing all the same air.
But no matter how cool or warm
Or pleasant the wind may be,
I find a loneliness there.

I keep moving on. Somewhere I don't know.
Though the past was a blast I'll move fast as I can go.

La La La La- It's my song, when I'm reaching for the sky.
La La La La- It's my life, I'll keep walking 'til I fly.
Although I might be walking all by myself,
I will keep traveling the endless road.

There are so many crossroads in my path.
So many times I'm in a bind.
But if I were to stop, to rest,
To let others pass me then
I would be falling behind.

But I must not forget. All the faces I've found.
I must see them, receive them, relieve them when they're down.

La La La La- It's my song, when I'm reaching for the sky.
La La La La- It's my life, I'll keep walking 'til I fly.
Since I will always walk on my own behalf,
It is the right path down the endless road.

There was a town I lived in, dreaming without a care.
And there was that song I sang when I couldn't bear,
The pain in life, the crushing blows.
That melody could silence those.
And though that tape is long disposed,
Remember how it goes:

La La La La- It's my song, when I'm reaching for the sky.
La La La La- It's my life, I'll keep walking 'til I fly.
La La La La- It's my song, when I'm reaching for the sky.
La La La La- It's my life, I'll keep walking 'til I fly.
Although I might be walking all by myself,
I will keep traveling the endless road.
