His Untold Story
By Dylan James Harley
 
Intro
 
Step by step I take this road
And step by step I drag this load
Yet I can’t seem to shake this bad feeling
 
That I’ll never gaze upon that thing which I seek
 
I trip loose a stone
I fall to the ground
I’m down on my knees
And I turn around
And…
 
Chorus
I-i-i am staring down a broken highway
But you-u-u are still a million miles in front of me
And the darkness still goes onward
And you-u-u will always be just beyond my reach
 
Verse 1
 
And I push myself forward in hope of a horizon
But it seems I’m on an... endless rope.
You’re my holy grail, my presidential campaign
But it’s almost like I’m working in vain
 
My father told me I was useless
My mother said, well, she didn’t disagree
I failed in school
I was on minimum wage
It seems the only thing that I ever did right
Was finding you
And now I feel so empty
Cos…
 
Chorus
 
I-i-i am staring down a broken highway
But you-u-u are still a million miles in front of me
And the darkness still goes onward
And you-u-u will always be just beyond my reach
 
Verse 2
 
He said “push yourself boy, you might find that horizon
God knows your father never did”
He was my teacher
My one and only dad
He knew who I was
He knew who I could be
I’m sorry to say I failed his hopes and dreams
 
My fathers best friend, he said “Kid you could big”
His sister, she said, well, she didn’t disagree
They’re the reason I found you
The reason I know you
And I can’t believe
That I could have lost you
And…
 
Chorus
 
I-i-i am staring down a broken highway
But you-u-u are still a million miles in front of me
And the darkness still goes onward
And you-u-u will always be just beyond my reach
 
 
Bridge
 
I’m closer
I’m closer
Then I’m further away
I’m closer
I’m closer
There’s so much more I want to say
There’s so much more I want to tell you
That from the very minute I met you
On that fateful day
I knew from the very start
That…
 
Chorus Reprise
I-i-i am staring at a fallen angel
And you-u-u are shining brighter than the son itself
And the darkness has no bounds here
And you-u-u will always be the lo-ove of my life
 
Outro
 
So step by step he took that road
Step by step he dragged his load
Yet he never could shake that bad feeling
That he’d never gaze upon that thing which he sought
 
He struck loose a stone
He slipped from the edge
His heart a beating volt
He turned around
And…
… fell.
