Songwriting – a new song by Matthew Moran


The past couple years have been, if nothing else, “introspective” – sometimes painfully so.

This song, Decision Road, was written early one morning – driven by two lines..
”One step forward, two steps back, it seems the way I go.

Navigate life’s messy path, the only way I know”

Lyrics & Video below:

Decision Road – video.
recorded on December 3, 2009 – 6:00AM – in my room…

Decision Road
Copyright 2009 (c) – Matthew Moran – Sounds Like Life

One step forward, two steps back, it seems the way I go
Navigate life’s messy path the only way I know

I don’t seek forgiveness
I don’t pray for my mortal soul
I don’t make excuses
I just keep dragging my bones down Decision Road

Is love just a warm caress that time turns dark and cold
Is sugar sweet just bitterness at the final curtain call

I just wanted your soft kiss
I just wanted a hand to hold
I just wanted devotion
Now I just want to carry my heart down Decision Road

& every night I face my demons
Mistakes & regrets I can’t let go
& with the light, life and the living
One more event I can’t control

With each mistake a lesson learned, I’ve filled my textbook full
With each word I’ve had to eat, I’ve swallowed that crow whole

I’m asking forgiveness
Please pray for my mortal soul
Take my excuses
& help me find me way down Decision Road
