I'm sittin' on a Sunday talking to Mary wondering where the good ones went I'm sittin' on a Sunday hands in my pockets wondering where the good ones went now I don't know what I aint been told don't you know that I'm just a man and I don't own what I aint been sold so I'm trying not to shake their hands Look up at the sky, one star at a time Look up at the sky and know it goes on and on... I see a little clearer when I open my eyes yeah we all go away in the end they seem a little clearer without their disguise it's so much easier not to pretend she said we're here and now yeah that's all we got so get down fro up on those steps you aint getting any higher by clasping your hands go out and do the best you can
train tracks smoke stacks orange setting sun bare trees with weak knees know the time has come small sprouts peeking on out feel the warm sunshine in the southwest Ontario I hear the geese now cry changing times and it feels so right to have you here right here by my side it's happening right before our eyes life moves on in a beautiful disguise right before our eyes the wind blows as the whitecaps flow down by the riverside clouds float up in the sky and just like me they're taking their time birdsong up in the trees warmth now on our skin we're free from the four walls that kept all the heat in
I'm lookin' for some light I'm lookin' for some light O Lord when those shadows cast me down down on the ground I'm lookin' for some light O Lord I'm lookin' for some light many road I've traveled down many folks I've met I been to the edge of darkness and back again where we go and what we see depends entirely on our thoughts and our actions our positive energy sometimes the sun it don't seem to shine we're packing up our boxes and running on down the line empty pockets and hearts out on our sleeves tears welling up in our eyes we're our own worst enemies time moves on sometimes it's hard to see the hands moving forward they're ticking on constantly all we got is now and all I got is you learning to love well it's the hardest thing to do
