The title track of this little collection is the most conceptualized recording Mariko has produced. With hope, the production quality helps to bring the message of the song to that many more peoples ears. A song about forgiveness we all need to hear.


out on that open road
all alone, no one to hold at night
imagination runs wild, you ran wild
all the years that you smoked away
circling like a bird in the same place
how you survived the loneliness, I can't imagine
all alone in that hospital bed
images running through your head
like the day your son was born
or the night that your love was over
but two wrongs don't make a right
and you don't give up on those you love
waiting for me to show up
I learned my lesson the hard way
forgiveness is the only
