  • Intended to tell a story, it starts with a typical person who is tired of the day-to-day grind and sets out to find something more fulfilling. In the process they leave behind all the things they've grown up believing. The bridge is the turn around point where our subject ends up in a hotel room, alone and confused, and finally turns to the Lord. The last verse completes the turn-around, focusing not just on the quick fix but setting sights on Christ in all things.


    tired of seven hours a day
    and weekends that go too fast

    i set my sights on boardwalk streets
    and a sunset that will last

    i grabbed my coat and told my friends
    that i was going away

    just a few long miles and a few good smiles
    and i'll have my love today

    ohh, lie, lie, lie
    why must i look so hard?
    ohh, lie, lie, lie
    must i be so far?

    intent on a life that is what i dream
    i set out to be free

    turned my check on my beliefs
    with whatever in front of me

    sick of words like 'trust' and 'hope'
    and 'hey man, you got to be good'

    but if i want i'll sit and stare
    all day at the clouds like i wished i could

    and just for tonight
    a place to rest my head

    my syes were heavy
    but i found no peace in this bed

    with the silence around
    i felt so alone again

    well, i closed my eyes with lifted hands
    and i fell to my knees instead

    tired of tears and a broken heart
    and love that fades too fast

    i set my sights for golden streets
    and a joy that will ever last...
