ALBERT HAMMOND lyrics - The Road To Understanding

ALBERT HAMMOND
"The Road To Understanding"

You had your faults, I had mine. Nothing's perfect, is it, baby?
If we'd given it the time, could have worked things out, well, maybe
Came to thinkin' what the hell
Not to dwell up on the problems
Our bodies came together well
And that was all we cared

More and more and more and more
More of the people gave up looking for
Avenues to happiness. You hear them say
"The road to understanding was just too far away."

While we watched the little things getting out of all proportion
There was so much more at stake, but we paid it no attention
I suppose if we had tried
We'd have saved the pot from boiling
But we went and let it slide
Until we lost control

And more and more and more and more
More of the people gave up looking for
Avenues to happiness. You hear them say
"The road to understanding was just too far away."

What was bad got worse, what was good just got forgotten
Could have stopped it there and then, but, girl, we didn't cotton
In the end we didn't care
All the love flew out the window
And I guess, just like you said
It all got outta hand

And more and more and more and more
More of the people gave up looking for
Avenues to happiness. You hear them say
"The road to understanding was just too far away."

More and more and more and more
More of the people gave up looking for
Avenues to happiness. You hear them say
"The road to understanding was just too far away."

More and more and more and more
More of the people gave up looking for
Avenues to happiness. You hear them say...
