Track 13 "One Way" - 'One Way' Album Preview

One Way is available now -Hear the album free and Pay What You Want at Or get it on iTunes!

I've heard Bruce Springsteen say that he was aiming to write the biggest rock song of all time when he wrote "Born to Run." That certainly wasn't my ambition with "One Way," but I knew when I discovered that piano riff that it would be a Big song. Big chords, big arrangements, important lyrics. It may be my best set of lyrics - capturing the attitude of the whole album (which is why it also became the album title). I love the vastness of it. I actually listened to Born To Run quite a bit when I came to mixing it, borrowed a couple of ideas. Kudos to Evan Smith for killing that sax solo. "One Way" is also the closer at our live gigs, and it fits as a great conclusion to the journey.

Well I’ve seen changes

Turning pages

All this writing on the wall

And perfect pictures

Holy scriptures

Still I’m bound to slip and fall

But all this faith

Has led me to your open gate

I’m always new

As long as I’ve got you

See I’ve left highways

Climbed from low ways

Tried to be a better man

And I’ve sailed oceans

Endless motion

Never knowing where I am

You’ve got to breath

Nobody tells you what you need

But I can choose

As long as I’ve got you

And I want to thank you in the crowd

Now I can’t forget what I have found

Got my feet back on the ground

Got my feet back on the ground

And I am swinging back around

And I’m just beginning to get loud

Got my feet back on the ground

Got my feet back on the ground

And all that’s steady

Always ready

All my family and friends

Where I came from

All I ran from

I see now that’s where I’ll end

Cause you can’t see

Heading one way down that street

There’s only truth

As long as I’ve got you

And down that street

We can live how we believe

I’m living proof

As long as I’ve got you

Going one way
