YUSUF ISLAM lyrics - Roadsinger

YUSUF ISLAM
"Roadsinger"

Roadsinger came to town, long cape and hat,
People stood and stared, then closed their doors
As he passed
He strolled the empty street, kids banged on tin cans
Then the panting dogs began to bark
As the Roadsinger sang

Where do you go? Where do you go?
When hearts are closed
When a friend becomes a stranger,
Nobody wants to know.
Where do you go? Oh, where do you go?
When the world turns dark
And the light of truth is blown out
And the roads are blocked.

He stopped by a store, between the barrels and sacks,
A child's face peeped out and gave a smile
And ran back
Behind a misty glass, on a window pane,
A little finger drew a perfect heart
And her name

Where do you go? Where do you go?
In a world filled with fright;
Only a song to warm you,
Through the night
Where do you go? Oh, where do you go?
After lies are told,
And the light of truth is blown out,
And the night is cold.

Roadsinger rode on, to another land
Though the people spoke a different tongue,
They'd understand
They showed him how to share and took him by the hand
Showed him the path to heaven
Through the desert sand

Where do you go? Where do you go?
To find happiness,
In a world filled with hatred,
And tears.
Where do you go? Oh, where do you go?
If no one cares
And everybody's lost,
Looking for theirs.
