EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

-

Tonight I went out from the kitchen

And looked up at the stars from the yard

I was hoping to get some perspectiv­e

But sometimes perspectiv­e is hard

I know my life is a blessing And all blessings come with a curse

My enemies I know I can handle But friends now, well, they can be worse

Oh, I’m so sick and tired of keeping it inside

I’m so sick and tired today I remember the old ones’ hard travelling

They’re with me every step of the way

Thousands smile when I go through my paces

They fall at my dancing feet They like to slap my back in high places

They want to shake my hand on the street

Oh, I love my beautiful children They clamber and climb all over me

I close my eyes and I’m dreaming

Of a world where they can just be

I’m so sick and tired of keeping it all inside

I’m so sick and tired today I remember the old ones’ hard travelling

They’re with me every step of the way

The old ones are walking beside me

Each and every step of the way
