One lonely shoe by the side of the road
I’m just one lonely shoe by the side of the road, don’t know if I’ll ever be loved;
I’ll tighten my laces and cover my eyes, and wait for a sign from above.
I was worn to the beach and played in the sand, then my owner he kicked me aside;
I was used as a scoop to build sand castle walls, then went in and out with the tide.
I floated around for a couple of days, and finally washed up on the road;
My tongue hangin out and shriveled a bit, found out I was used as a home for a toad.
I’m just one lonely shoe by the side of the road, don’t know if I’ll ever be found;
I’ll tighten my laces and cover my eyes and wait for a walk into town.
Tired and alone I prayed to myself, that someone might need me today;
Then out of the blue I got tossed in a cart, and there in the pile was my solemate Renae.
I was one lonely shoe by the side of the road but now I’m a sight to behold.
I’ll tighten my laces and cover my eyes and spend walks on the town growin old.
