Open Road Lyrics - Gary Barlow

Review The Song (2)



My life, is extraordinary bare, I fought the fear and chased the pain.
My life, doesn't need to be explained, I chose to walk the line as one.
Sometimes, as I live upon my island, Cut off from emotion and its pain.
That's when, I am tempted by the waters, Waters that can take me far away.

Chorus
So I'll just keep on walking down this open road,
Hoping someone, somewhere needs me.
So I'll just keep on walking down this open road,
Talking to the man who knows me,
Yes he knows me, the man is me.

My life, was once full of people's faces, Brought to me by love, which isn't strange.
My life, had the goodness of blue waters, A day's a day for all I used to say.
Sometimes, I can sit and cry my heart out, Drowning in my autocratic ways.
That's when, I am tempted by the waters, Waters that can take me far away.

Repeat Chorus

My life, is now full of people's faces, Within the light of change I pulled away.

My life, shows that no man is an island,
I've exchanged the piece of life I cut away.
Now you won't see me walking down that open road,
I've found someone now who needs me.
No, you won't see me walking down that open road,
I've found at last the man who knows me.
Yes, he knows me and the man was me, the man was me.

This song, like many Gary Barlow ones of the time between 1997-1999 has been hugely underrated. It's uplifting, profound and lays bare his feelings about the events unfolding around him at that time. I can barely sing along to it without tears. It's such a powerful statement of acceptance and self belief in the face of massive uncertainty and disillusionment. This man has enormous emotional strength and, so rare for a man, has an amazing ability to articulate deep and complex emotions. He communicates brilliantly through music. A truly gifted and prolific songwriter and musician of our time.
