about

A song of joy for a world that needs it.

lyrics

Difficult as it may be
You can’t let yourself say maybe
You gotta set yourself a course
With inspiration as its source

Set aside
The uncertainty
And let yourself
Say certainly

To stick to the path
You drew out on your map
The rest of your course
Will gradually unwrap

Diversion now
Distraction later
Might alter the route
If to your doubts you waver

It’s a long road ahead
That might twist and bend
But keep to the path
And you’ll arrive in the end

Buckle up tight
And brace for the ride
You can only go once
So enjoy your time

Every journey
Might have its end
But yours could go on
If you choose to begin

Everyone’s got
A desire to succeed
But how they proceed
Is a matter of their will

How they get their fame
And how they get their way
Is a choice of their own
A decision of the soul

Everyone’s got
A different map to read
With the things they need
Circled in red

How they find their passion
And how they keep from crashing
Is a matter of precision
In guiding their volition

Everything in life is
A block away
Cities of chances
Beg you to stay

Born in the country
To make your way here
The signs and the arrows
Make the way clear

When you’ve had your fun
And you’re ready to be done
The roads lead on
Through the dusk and the dawn

Back to the country
If that’s what you choose
But might as well stay
Because you really can’t lose

Diversion now
Distraction later
Might alter the route
If to your doubts you waver

It’s a long road ahead
That might twist and bend
But keep to the path
And you’ll arrive in the end

Buckle up tight
And brace for the ride
You can only go once
So enjoy your time

Every journey
Might have its end
But yours could go on
If you choose to begin

Even if you should fall
Or if you should stall
There’s no reason to turn back
No need to leave the track

And even should you stumble
Or feel yourself crumble
Just pick yourself up
And show the world that you’re tough

Like a storm whose front
Cannot be stopped

Like an inferno whose flames
Cannot be tamed

No two paths
Are ever the same
So whichever you choose
Will never be plain

You’ll find your way through
Heat and haze
And be happy for
All your days

Like a storm whose front
Cannot be stopped

Like an inferno whose flames
Cannot be tamed

No two paths
Are ever the same
So whichever you choose
Will never be plain

You’ll never stray
From the course
For you are one
Unstoppable force

Everyone’s got
A desire to succeed
But how they proceed
Is a matter of their will

How they get their fame
And how they get their way
Is a choice of their own
A decision of the soul

Everyone’s got
A different map to read
With the things they need
Circled in red

How they find their passion
And how they keep from crashing
Is a matter of precision
In guiding their volition

Everything in life is
A block away
Cities of chances
Beg you to stay

Born in the country
To make your way here
The signs and the arrows
Make the way clear

When you’ve had your fun
And you’re ready to be done
The roads lead on
Through the dusk and the dawn

Back to the country
If that’s what you choose
But might as well stay
Because you really can’t lose
