Looks like we made it to the middle
I never, ever thought
That we would get this far
Never get the chance to solve the bigger riddles
Push a little farther and collect more scars

It’s a dead man’s world
Life is just a break
A time in-between
Until we finally get to take
That long, long nap
After years of being awake

Become, once again
A part of the mud

Looks like we made it to the middle
I never, ever thought
That we would get this far
Never get the chance to solve the bigger riddles
Push a little farther and collect more scars

The road left behind
Is littered with mistakes
But we keep moving on
And raising the stakes
And we ‘ll use the lessons we've learned
On the roads we've still to take

Breathe it all in
And keep the windows open

Looks like we made it to the middle
I never, ever thought
That we would get this far
Never get the chance to solve the bigger riddles
Push a little farther and collect more scars
Song Comments

Over The Moon
Loving this very melodic track which shows off good vocal range and engaging lyrics. Nice one Todd!


Cup'A Coffee (Expresso)
neat melody, stirrin' vocal, storytellin', keys (or is that an accordion) a beautiful touch, and the lyrics are adventurous and unique, kudos...


Music Lovers
"todd summons the open road here in this classic sounding, and thot provokin' tune, alternately tough minded, warm hearted, intelligent lyrics, bells and whistles production..." 5 Songs A Day (5)


Diane's Place
I hope I haven't made it to the middle yet! Love the song though. And if you haven't, pay a visit to their page. Where to start, you'll say. Well, just jump in!


Trip Poppies Radio
This track features some lovely guitar work, insightful lyrics and laid back, easy going hooks. Enjoy


Road Movie..
Really sweet roadtrippin' Americana from Todd ..A touch of country.a touch of Elliott Smith,a touch of Mott THe Hoople,a touch of Tom Petty..Just a lovely warm hearted vibe here..


2015 Golden Kayak Nominees!
nominated in Country


Melody Makers
With a 'matter-of-fact-Leonard Cohen-disposition', this song is humble and believable with just the right amount of hooky descendings in the right places to catch you as you fall into the melody. - MM


The Good Stuff: VI
Can't believe that I haven't already added this to my station. It won a Golden Kayak and everything... Well, better late than never.


XNWY Kickinghorse Country Radio
Golden Kayak Winner Best Country Song 2015


IMPs Premier Singer-Songwriters
One of IMP's most prolific and diverse writers won the 2015 Golden Kayak with this one, which starts out quietly and builds, and as it does it grows on you, while delivering what is ultimately a very positive and uplifting message.


OCTOBERON
So thankful we got this far!
