Enjoy The Ride

Shut the gates at sunset
After that you can’t get out
You can see the bigger picture
Find out what it’s all about
You’re open to the skyline
You won’t want to go back home
In a garden full of angels
You will never be alone

But oh the road is long
The stones that you are walking on
Have gone

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows
Just enjoy the ride

If you close the door to your house
Don’t let anybody in
It’s a room that’s full of nothing
All that underneath your skin
Face against the window
You can’t watch it fade to grey
And you’ll never catch the fickle wind
If you choose to stay

But oh the road is long
The stones that you are walking on
Have gone

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows
Just enjoy the ride

Stop chasing shadows
Just enjoy the ride

This song was playing on my iPod while I was making my way home today and I just had to play it over again a few times. Listening to the lyrics I began to sing along. “Stop chasing shadows, just enjoy the ride”… words that really speak to me at the moment and sent chills down my spine. Mind you, the chills could have had something to do with the fact that today is a cold November day. Even though I was dressed for it and had my lovely new hat on, I never get used to the cold. Good thing there’s all this good music around to keep nice and warm on the inside. I’ve watched the video several times and I just don’t get it. Not sure I would have chosen cartoon animation as a visual for this song, but that’s just my opinion.
