Winding Road. . .a song.

Hey all!  This is a song I wrote when I was back at my parents' house in Greenville South Carolina.  I wrote it either the day before or the day of my trampoline/sprained ankle incident. The days started blurring together pretty quick after that.

This line came to me a few days before, "it's a winding road you can't turn around on".  The image in my mind being an old car going up this hill and realizing that it's really hard to drive this road but once you're on it there's no turning back.

 It's kind of like life, right?  Life is a winding road.  Sometimes the road is level and you're cruising listening to your favorite song and singing along and sometimes it's all uphill and it's really tough.  But you can't turn around--you have to keep going forward to find your place.  Sometimes too, in life, I feel like I have to know exactly where I'm going or what my next move is--but that's not exactly the case most of the time.  I don't always know the next step.  That's scary.  But I think it's also really good sometimes.  We are all in this life, just figuring it out as we go.  Together.  

I hope you like the song!  Let me know what you think!
