#MusicMonday ft. Long Road to Ruin by Foo Fighters

Hi and welcome to #MusicMonday!

First of all, credit where credit is due: Music Monday is hosted by Drew a.k.a. @SarcasticEnigma over on The Tattooed Book Geek. Each week he presents a song that he really loves and this week I decided to join in again with a song in honour of a fab novel: The Passengers by John Marrs. If you’re a regular, you might remember I dedicated a song to this particular novel once before because it was stuck in my head the entire time I was reading it: Highway to Hell by AC/DC. Since the The Passengers blog tour is in full swing at the moment, I thought I’d dedicate another fab song to this glorious thriller. So enjoy Foo Fighters, and if you missed my review and want to see me gush: it’s right here!

Hey now don’t make a sound
Say have you heard the news today?
One flag was taken down
To raise another in it’s place
A heavy cross you bear
A stubborn heart remains unchanged
No home, no life, no love
No stranger singing in your name
Maybe the season
The colors change in the valley skies
Dear God I’ve sealed my fate
Running through hell
Heaven can wait
Long road to ruin
There in your eyes
Under the cold streetlights
No tomorrow
No dead-end in sight
Let’s say we take this town
No king or queen of any state
Get up to shut it down
Open the streets and raise the gates
I know a wall to scale
I know a field without a name
Head on without a care
Before it’s way too late
Maybe the season
The colors change in the valley skies
Oh God I’ve sealed my fate
Running through hell
Heaven can wait
Long road to ruin
There in your eyes
Under the cold streetlights
No tomorrow
No dead-ends
Long road to ruin
There in your eyes
Under the cold streetlights
No tomorrow
No dead-end in sight
For every piece to fall in place
Forever gone without a trace
Your horizon takes its shape
No turning back, don’t turn that page
Come now, I’m leaving here tonight
Come now, let’s leave it all behind
Is that the price you pay
Running through hell
Heaven can wait
Long road to ruin
There in your eyes
Under the cold streetlights
No tomorrow
No dead ends
Long road to ruin
There in your eyes
Under the cold streetlights
No tomorrow
No dead ends
Long road to ruin
There in your eyes
Under the cold streetlights
No tomorrow
No dead-end in sight
