SALVATION ROAD                               

Young girl in a flowery dress

Says this must be the place

Hops out of her sister's car

And wipes the tears off of her face


She signs in at the register

And gets herself in line

Tells herself that this will all

Be done by suppertime

Too young to be a mother

Too young to be a wife

But I guess she’s not to young

To take her own babies life


(CHORUS)
Salvation Road, Salvation Road

Salvation Road

Who will save her?


Down the street a businessman

Pulls in a cheap motel

He’s looking for an easy fix

She’s looking for an easy sell

He won’t kiss her when it’s over

But he’ll pay her when she’s done

A man must do what a man must do

But this man won’t tell anyone


Salvation Road, Salvation Road

Salvation Road, who will save them?

(BRIDGE)
We all got our demons

We all make our choices

We can bury our dead

But we can’t still their voices

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE


I must confess I've spent some time

On the darker side

Walking over that fine line

With nothing left to hide

Can’t say that I always learned

Every time my tide came in

Play with fire and you’ll get burned

Or you don’t look back and live with it


Salvation Road, Salvation Road

Salvation Road, who will save me?

Salvation Road, Salvation Road

Salvation Road, who will save me?

Who will save me?
