The Destined Traveller
Waving a goodbye to my family who I adored
packed everything up, and got in my Ford
I could not reverse so I hit the road
and started a journey, leaving behind all the load
Dont know the route where I would land
yet my mind's driving, steering with my hand
I saw this guy his car broken down
exhausted he looked, on his face full of frown
So i helped him and gave this guy a ride
and together we drove towards the countryside
We made a promise to each other
that we'd remember our journey forever
We then said goodbyes and left to fate
embarked in our hearts the moment, marked on our calendars the date
I reached back to my monotonous life and saw the news he died
I couldn't remember his face but i did recall the entire ride
It was fun, the journey with that guy
the guy from the broke down car
only if i could save him once more
and travel once again somewhere far..
but somehow it seemed like déjà vu
I've felt this helplessness before too
And as the truth unfolded it's dark secrets
realisation fired upon me like burning bullets..
The broke down car was a roadside pit
and the person was an abandoned pup
The fact that I am a dog rescuer lit
with tears for who couldn't live and gave up..
Yes I tried my best to save this dog again,
But sadly all my efforts went in vain
It was the depression which made me lose my mind just now
I don't remember when it started or how..
Just that I wish there'd be a day when I'm out of a job
when there's no more abandoned pets for me to sob
I'm happy with the ones that I could save
But i still fear digging up another grave..
Here I go again searching for another boy with a broken car
I'm a dog rescuer still going on my journey someplace far
I'm a dog rescuer still going on my journey someplace far.......
