Tom Sparks: Music

Back Down Jomax Road

(performed by Tom Sparks)
written by Jehara & Tom Sparks
It's 1:00 AM and I can't sleep, I woke-up dreaming and found my heart was bleeding deep,
Times like these,
You would hold me close and kiss it all away; it's so hard to believe the price we pay.

There's a road that always goes nowhere, but that 'nowhere' means so much to me,
A sacred place where blind lovers are able to see.
It's where I lived, and where I cried; it's where we loved and where I died,
And even now I feel the night-winds blow, carries me back to Jomax Road.

You'll never see behind the smiles, and never know of tears that filled-up every mile,
That's not my style.
I could tell you how I miss your touch, my love, but to you it may not mean much, my love.

There's a road that always goes nowhere, but that 'nowhere' means so much to me,
A sacred place where blind lovers are able to see.
It's where I lived, and where I cried; it's where we loved and where I died,
And even now I feel the night-winds blow, carries me back to Jomax Road.

So I keep to my silence and I leave my heart alone,
And I laugh with you, and smile on the telephone.
And I want to smell the roses that our memory grew,
But they've all become thorns in my life without you.

There's a road that always goes nowhere, but that 'nowhere' means so much to me,
A sacred place where blind lovers are able to see.
It's where I lived, and where I cried; it's where we loved and where I died,
And even now I feel the night-winds blow, carries me back to Jomax Road.
