about

A song for an upcoming mountain biking documentary...don't tell them I gave it to you first! ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS SONG WILL BE DONATED TO THE FILM. GIVE UNITL IT HURTS...LIKE ROAD RASH.

lyrics

Sunlight breaks, the wheels are moving
Far above this town I’m cruising
I've put behind those things that held me in my chair
For I am but a child spinnin’
Racing through this tree-line grinnin’
And I’m wishin’ you could see the things I’ve seen up here…

And you once told me that I’d have to find my own way through these hills, and that’s life’s a journey, not a road…

And that the roller coaster knows which way to go.

Cuz’ all I need, the world will teach me
And all your love will somehow reach me,
touching all that I’ve become and all I’ll be
and every day I grow up stronger
and I ride for just a little longer
and I now I understand why you’ve been pushing me

And you once told me that those training wheels would be a memory,
And that’d I’d find that balance on my own

And that the roller coaster knows which way to go

Under blue skies, with my own eyes, I’ve seen my shadow start to grow, and the roller coaster knows which way to go

Sunlight breaks, the wheels are moving
Far above this town I’m cruising
I've put behind those things that held me in my chair
Oh gravity you will release me
There’s nothing more that you can teach me
Cuz’ I’m already high above the clouds up there

And you once told me that I'd have to find my own way through these hills, and the time is now, well I suppose

the roller coaster knows which way to go

Thanks for visiting us online. Managing songs is like herding cats...old revisions, new revisions, added a solo here, a backing vocal there, blah blah blah. Hoping to update this as we finish the songs...always a few in progress. Look for some country'ish stuff over the next few months. Yee-Haw.
Thanks.
