Crossroads
words and music by Joel Rafael

Once there was a time
I thought I could remember
Every detail of my life
That time is far behind me now

Once there was a way to get back
To the place that I was coming from
But now I find that
I've forgotten how

It's not that distant memories are needing me
But there is something in my past that's still there leading me
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Where perhaps I lost my way

Riding towards the west
I know I'm racing just to catch the setting sun
To grab some light
Before my day is done

Beneath a fading sky
Of swirling blue and white
To a place where I can see
The ocean and the land turn into one

It's not just walk along her sandy shore
But there's a place that I must go that I have been before
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Where perhaps I lost my way

Before the light of dawn
Finds its way through the slats
Within your window shade
I will be gone but I will not be late

Returning with the evening
Stars will sparkle in the eastern sky
To guide me safely back here
To your garden gate

It is not my wish to spend time on my own
But there are places that each one of us must go it alone
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Back along this highway to a crossroads
Where I just might find my way
