For all the lessons to be learned in life
There are two ways you can go
Believe the teacher’s well-weighed words
Or feel the pain on your own
And I’m always on the hard road
The one that twists and climbs
Just when I think I’m almost there
The crossroads come every time:
The crossroads come and you have to choose
Your very, very own way
When it looks like you’re back to where you started from
You’re a million, million miles away
And every step that I take
Shows me so crystal clear
The true nature of my soul
Shows me why I am here:
The circle keeps on turning
It can pull you up or down
But life, it is for the learning
This time and next time around:
You’re a million, million miles away…
