THE ROAD YOU DIDN'T TAKE Song Lyrics

 
Follies Soundtrack - Movie, 1992
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
THE ROAD YOU DIDN'T TAKE BEN:

You're either a poet



Or you're a lover

Or you're the famous

Benjamin Stone.

You take one road,

You try one door,

There isn't time for any more.

One's life consists of either/or.

One has regrets

Which one forgets,

And as the years go on.

The road you didn't take

Hardly comes to mind,

Does it?

The door you didn't try,

Where could it have led?

The choice you didn't make

Never was defined.

Was it!

Dreams you didn't dare

Are dead.

Were they ever there?

Who said!

I don't remember,

I don't remember

At all.

The books I'll never read

Wouldn't change a thing,

Would they?

The girls I'll never know

I'm too tired for.

The lives I'll never lead

Couldn't make me sing.

Could they? Could they? Could they?

Chances that you miss.

Ignore.

Ignorance is bliss--

What's more,

You won't remember,

You won't remember

At all,

Not at all.You yearn for the women,

Long for the money,

Envy the famous

Benjamin Stones.

You take your road,

The decades fly,

The yearnings fade, the longings die.

You learn to bid them all goodbye.

And oh, the peace,

The blessed peace...

At last you come to know:

The roads you never take

Go through rocky ground,

Don't they?

The choices that you make

Aren't all that grim.

The worlds you never see

Still will be around,

Won't they!

The Ben I'll never be,

Who remembers him?
