"Dusty Road" by: Walter Rose

Bottom of a glass staring back at me
Never seemed to help the pain
Sunny skies behind your eyes
He’s written all over your face
Now there’s nothing left to say

Pictures of you from better times
Who’s that by your side
Maybe it’s me the man I used to be, hey
But my love has gone to waste
and I guess I knew you’d never stay

losing my grip
She’s falling from my hands
The word’s been said
And that sun keeps burning
All I can do is watch her go
Tires turn down a dusty road

Teary eyed battered soul
Tires turning down a dusty road
Wondering were this time you’ll go
And I know I’ve made mistakes
But this old heart was built to break

Time and love’s only gonna weigh me down
Shuffle my feet through the same old town
Your eyes can tell the tale that your lips could never say
Rattle the dice in the games we play

No need for enemies with a lover like you
No one can treat me quite like you do
With your eyes full of promise and mouth full of lies
How many more baby have you left behind
With a broken heart just like mine

And all I can do
Is watch her go
Tires turning down a dusty road

American Songwriter Magazine wrote that Rose’s previous EP sounded “as if it could have been released in 1975.” This carries over to Cast Your Stone, not only in the closeness of Rose’s voice and confessional lyric style, but also in the overall sonic experience.
