Alec Benjamin - The Way To Nowhere Lyrics




She's on her way to work, her heart is wearing thin
The tattoos leave a mark from everywhere she's been
Cause she's never in one place, she takes it on the chin
Now tears are welling up and they are rushing down her skin
While she's pushing trough the door, she hides behind a grin
But no one really knows how sad she feels within
Life goes on, put a sad song on

She's tryna go the distance, but she's running out of love
It doesn't make a difference, no it's never quite enough
Buys chocolate bars and magazines, the things that make her smile
But she falls down, down, down
She's on her way back to work at 7, when the morning sun is up
She goes home at 11 with her coat all buttoned up
Buys cigarettes and DVDs, the thing that make her smile
But she falls down, down, down
She's on her way to nowhere

Driving in the rain to her house right up the road
Her name is on the mailbox but it never feels like home
When she's climbing into bed, you know, she's climbing all alone
When she's climbing into bed, she's climbing on her own
Life goes on, put a sad song on

She's tryna go the distance, but she's running out of love
It doesn't make a difference, no it's never quite enough
Buys chocolate bars and magazines, the things that make her smile
But she falls down, down, down
She's on her way back to work at 7, when the morning sun is up
She goes home at 11 with her coat all buttoned up
Buys cigarettes and DVDs, the thing that make her smile
But she falls down, down, down
She's on her way to nowhere

He's working at the bar and takes a later shift
A little drunk and far too young to end up just like this
When he takes her by the hand, she does not resist
They're on their way to nowhere because nowhere sure beats this

She's tryna go the distance, now she's got a little love
A little makes a difference, even if it's not enough
The chocolate bars and magazines, just leave 'em on the shelf
And put 'em down, down, down
She's on her way back to work at 7, when the morning sun is up
The drive home at 11 to smoke cigarettes and stuff
The DVDs and memories, you keep them to yourself
From the way down, down, down
They're on their way to nowhere

  1. Ella Mccarthy

    Please put this on Spotify 🙏

  2. Sydney-Jay Queen

    For those who say Alec makes no mistakes, you’re SO WRONG. He makes the same mistake every song.

    ...

    He stops singing at the end...😔

  3. rosebudcod

    Jesus Christ, there could not have been a better time in my life to discover this time. Life's been real tough for awhile

  4. Billy Levy

    When will Alec release these awesome tunes

  7. SnapperDapper

    I’ve been dealing with depression and anxiety since I was 10 and an eating disorder since I was 15. I’ve self harmed and attempted suicide multiple times. Your music has helped me through some tough times. Thank you.

  8. Marie Walker

    Alec, please know that only you hold the power to heal me with your voice and songs and looks. I have anxiety and depression, no one knows, not even my parents. Only my friends. I cut and stuff but once i found you, i genuinely smiled, felt like brushing your fluffy hair and cuddling you to sleep. I may sound very obsessive and yes, i am. I freaking thank you. I’m 2 weeks free from self harm and i proud of that. Ive liked you since January. LOVE YA

  16. •Karen •

    Why did I actually start crying, I feel so vulnerable right now 🐞😅

    Blue C. Lupei

    Congratulations 🎉 welcome to the Alec Benjamin fanclub 💖

  17. Sophia Campana

    in my opinion this is Alec's most underrated song!!

  18. Oskar Kinat

    I have a question...






    ...WHY ISN'T ALEC MORE FAMOUS!?!?!?!?!?

  19. callmetiffany

    favourite song ever :')

  20. juliana crupinski

    Alec é perfeito, como ele não é super famoso??

  21. Sultana Avdic

    I really hope that keeping a video on loop contributes to views or at least to Alec's ad revenue. I keep trying to listen to other songs, but I inevitably end up listening to this one at least five hours a day at work. It gives me that intensely painful yet satisfying pulling sensation in my heart because it's just... so good. The lyrics??? His vocals?? God what a genius

  22. Joseph Hulme

    Liked and Subbed. Like Always.

  23. Lahly Bird

    Life goes on, put a sad song on says Alec Benjamin, me LOL

  25. Canal Animado

  26. Hanana

    This song makes me feel nostalgic and I can't explain why. All I can do is stop what I'm doing and take it in. Love it!

  27. edward murphy

  30. Salma Mourabit

    I've never related to any of your songs as much as this one and I think I know all of them

  31. K31r4 the somebody

    Me: OH REALLY! I DIDNT NOTICE!!😂

  32. Büşra Gülmez

  44. Ina

    Dear Mr.Benjamin,

    You’ll probably never see this, but that’s fine. Because as long as I know I tried, is all that matters. Anyway.. I just wanted to say that you’ve helped me through so much. You’ve made me realize that I might actually be worth something in this little world of ours, and that with ups there are down and vice versa. Thank you for putting out such amazing art that, not only I, but all of your fan can listen to and learn from. All of your music has a special place in my heart because of all the different meanings behind the lyrics. You truly are something amazing, and I love you for that. Thank you for all you’ve done.

    -Just a shy fan💜

  56. chung chiu

    I remember the first time I heard one of your songs I was at a friends sleepover birthday party thing, the only other person she invited played Boy In the Bubble, they sang along as I sat still. The next night I looked you up, that's when I was introduced to your magnificent creations.

  57. Anastasia Despotidou

    I'm speachless..you just have something that can make cry and smile at the same time..is it your voice?? or your lyrics?? I don't know

  75. Petty, Blunt, N Obnoxious

    Now tears are welling up, And they are rushing down her skin, While she's pushing through the door, She hides behind a grin, But no one really knows, How sad she feels within. Is my favourite part of the song.

  76. PikaPixie

    I know this is an older song of yours but I really love this. You didn't go too dark and you didn't solve her life with love. I especially love the line "now she's got a little love, a little makes a difference even if it's not enough".
