Ward, Tyler - Dashes Lyrics

Maybe one day I'll come back here
Maybe one day I'll be able to love you like I should
I know it looks like I'm running
I never said that what we had here wasn't good

If I don't try now I'll go crazy
I don't want to wish that I had when I look back on my life
There’s a feeling I'm chasing
Feels like what I want's on the other side

So let me go
Give me dashes on the road
Maybe I'm walking to a place I don't know
I gotta see how things, they turn out
'Cause dreams in this town get cold
You'll miss your chances if you're marching in time
Even if I go alone
The least you can give me are dashes on the road

There's a city I never laid eyes on
And I can swear there's an answer waiting there for me
Driving to my horizon that's always been just out of reach
It's just what I need
If you love me, then let me just go

Oh, give me dashes on the road
Maybe I'm walking to a place I don't know
I gotta see how things, they turn out
'Cause dreams in this town get cold
You'll miss your chances if you're marching in time
Even if I go alone
The least you can give me are dashes on the road

Yeah, I'm a little scared to leave home
But every time that I close my eyes
I know that I must go

So, let me go
Give me dashes on the road
Maybe I'm walking to a place I don't know
Maybe everything turns out
And I'll finally find my soul
You’ll miss your chances if you're marching in time
Even if I go alone
The least you can give me are dashes on the road
Even if I go alone
The least you can give me are dashes on the road

  25. Laura McAteer

    When I first stumbled across this song, I was in a place where I needed dashes on the road. Since then I've begun a journey of finding my soul, and while I can't say I'm "there", I know I've made progress, because I can listen to this song and truly enjoy and relate without my chest hurting. Thank you for putting words to a feeling I couldn't define. This song has helped me process and work through a lot. 😊 *hugs*

  26. Andro P.W.

    2018... and still feels the dashes... Really thanks for such song! Keep up the good song!

  29. Serena Zeng

    I just read your description and your entire story is so powerful!

  30. Rt’s

    It's almost 2018 and this is still a one of my most favorites.

  31. Mellowney Vallen

    Seriously, this whole song is in now more than ever very relatable to me.
    For my whole life, I've lived in a province where I had alot of sh*tty happenings, and I'm starting to feel like I'm going crazy. I'm not happy anymore where I live, because of how alot of people treated me here my whole life. I just want to get away from this place and these people, and move to another, new place, a 'city I never laid eyes on', also because I really like discovering new places. I want to go to another province in my country, where nobody knows me, and so, my past. I just REALLY need a new start. 'It's just what I need'. But some people don't want to let me go.

  32. Dashes

    He made a whole song about me wow. Thanks dude :3

  41. Jahzeel mae Licayan

    Almost 3 years ago, I fell in love with this song ... now I realize this song actually describes my life right now.
    This just uplifting and empowering that someone out the understands how I feel. How I need to go and make my dreams come true.

  42. April De Rosier

    this song inspired me to just jump on a bus and move to NYC...

    ...and what an amazing decision it was. 😊❤

  43. Afi Tae

    Goosebumps man!!!

  44. Ellen Brown

    I lost a great friend recently- a big brother really... he went travelling for a year and I've found it very difficult to come to terms with being without him for so long. This song, hearing it from his perspective, has helped me immensely. (it also helps that it's a kick-ass song as well)
    So thank you Tyler.
    Truly, Thank You.

  45. Biena1507

    I'm from germany, my english is not so good, I'm so sorry!
    But I love your songs and your voice!
    You are so amazing ♡♡♡

  46. Yenney Rossi

    Nice song & story ♥
    Thanks for sharing it..

  47. Heidi Guidry

    It takes courage to admit you've made a mistake or mistreated someone. And it takes even more to do so publicly. I'm glad you had the chance you make things right and find yourself again. Thank you for be willing to expose all the different parts of yourself, not just the good ones. I'm honored to call myself a fan.

  48. Ruatfela Chhakchhuak

    Anyone listening in 2017?

  49. Samuel Lewis

    Love this! Keep up the originals dude!!

    Maybe one day You'll be able to get out of first gear.

    ron dadoo

    Well i do suppose he has a fan base, though I have to wonder what kind of boring bastards they must be. so if you say he's already in third gear maybe he'll get his foot down to the floor and attempt to get that trailer off his tail.. but I don't think he will. He's stuck up his own arse and it is noticeable that he thoroughly believes he is the greatest to the point of annoyance. Has nobody told him or has he not looked around You Tube and seen the countless amount of "singers" who sound exactly like himself doing exactly the same type of unforgettable trash.


    ron dadoo I don't know man, I've never heard of you. and from that last comment you seem pretty noticeably stuck up yourself. or maybe you just have some issues, but either way you'd have been better off not commenting at all.

    ron dadoo

    Look I'm commenting on the fact that this nondescript is just like the countless nondescripts who actually believe they are entertaining, to the point of pulling out your own teeth as a distraction. Incidentally I don't have to be known to you to make this observation. TV talent shows are awash with this garbage. , He is exactly like dry ground oatmeal....unpalatable and very hard to swallow.


    ron dadoo ok I'm going with you have issues considering you just compared music to oatmeal

    ron dadoo

    You can go with whatever you want and you will. However, I'm not making a sweeping statement about music in general as you are attempting to make out . I meant it about this kind of music and this kind of performer. You will notice I used the descriptive "HE" in the sentence where I mentioned oatmeal. I could have said something more appropriate like , being held down and forced to eat shite surely can't be half as bad as watching and listening to this waste of time licking his own arse.. Now bugger off and find something else to entertain your "musical" desert of a mind.

  61. Limesss

    omg i love your song its makes me cry

  62. sara Okay

    I'm hating this

  63. kyle sulbo-an

    This so great I wish you could do more. I think this is your second best because Yellow Boxes is my fav. Thank you for this Tyler!

  66. rlly


  67. Josh Kerr

    Why is this no longer on iTunes? I'm rather upset about that.

  68. PY X

    I believe this song deserves more views, but it's like Tyler is singing exactly how I am feeling and I just want to keep this song to myself.

  69. The SnarkyArtist

    I can't tell you how much I love listening to your songs and vlogs. Some of them make me want to cry because there is so much truth in them. And I didn't think someone as cool as you could love God so much. It's really inspiring.

  70. Alkae

    wow tyler !

  75. Rafita Ekayanti

    one day, if you were back then brings your dream home. I just want to see you again then watched you remember Me. Goodluck for your school. we may be separable by the distance and miles. but, one thing I always keep it, this feeling of secret love for my best friend: 333 someday you'll understand how much I love you. he's more than my everything <3

  76. Drunella Timmins-Young

    i love this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :0 ;) :)

  77. MarissaaaaaJ

    Hi Ty!! This song is so amazing and so powerful. I love it. But what keeps touching my heart, every single time is your story, the way you find the words fo write what you want, what you believe is good. Words to explain how you feel or why you did something. Beautiful words that can be hard too. Hard to find, hard to say. I hadn't read this one yet but I wanted to say, we're not alone, never. And when we go through rough times we look up to people. One of those people for me is you. I look up to you, your videos, not only the music ones also the others ones, stories, short messages and more. They are always so honest and strong in their own way. You'll probably never read this but if you do, thankyou. Thankyou for so much. You honestly help more people than you think, myself including. I haven't had the most "popular" & easy youth, Ive been through a lot. But I'm finally following my heart, reaching for the stars and trying my best in everything but while doing that I hope to be the best version of me. And you help with that. Thank you with all my heart😘 Love, Marissa

  78. Nathan Haimson
