Lyrics for The Ride by Sam Alessi (Download PDF)

Mom said there is a reason
Dad said it’s all my fault
but I know it’s
just the way
things turned out

I remember these feelings
Back when I was a little scout
they said be a
man or you
must get out

Wheel goes round
Round and round
Leading us on to
higher ground
Wheel goes round
Round and round
Count the days till
we all are free

Come here we see your demon
What only death can halt
left him bloody
as he prayed
please let me out

So his spirit fled the killing
Kicked and punched out
as they laughed and
drank their
minds out

Wheel goes round
Round and round
Leading us on to
higher ground
Wheel goes round
Round and round
Count the days till
we all are free

I know there must be a reason
For all the love I feel inside |
and I know it’s
just the way
we can be

So I ride down this highway
With my 70 lb load
and all I ask is that
the wind would not hate
the door would not fear
And all can feast
No matter of skin or
nature or fall

Wheel goes round
Round and round
Leading us on to
higher ground
Wheel goes round
Round and round
Count the days till
we all are free
