On October 6, Frank Fletcher, a seasoned musician who has played over 200 shows a year, released his latest single, “Cold, Dark & Lonely.” In this heartfelt track, Fletcher candidly shares the bittersweet reality of life on the road, a reality that many musicians, truckers, and travelers can relate to.
Fletcher’s lyrics paint a vivid picture of a life filled with long, empty highways and nights spent away from loved ones. The song captures the emotional rollercoaster that comes with a career that often keeps individuals far from the comforts of home. “The road isn’t always glamorous,” Fletcher admits. “The highs are really high and the lows can sometimes be exceptionally low. Musicians are always torn between their music, road life, and yearning for their home. The highway is lonely, but it’s worth it, especially when your fanbase and listeners feel the emotion poured into the music.”
The lyrics, penned by Frank Fletcher, Dennis Powell, Wesley Brown, and Ben Byrd, tell the story of a musician’s longing for home while traversing the desolate roads of Texas. The chorus encapsulates the essence of the song: “Cold, Dark and Lonely on this highway tonight, every mile that’s up ahead is like the one I just passed by.”
For those who can relate to the trials and tribulations of life on the road, “Cold, Dark & Lonely” is a reminder that even amidst the solitude and challenges, the pursuit of one’s passion is a journey worth taking.
