lyrics

I try to walk the line though I'm stumbling all the time,
tell me, do you know where it is that I am going?
could it be my lack of concentration's showing
or am I destined to be lost?

I carry what I can upon my shoulders and in both hands
but my burdens are forever changing shape
and I can't always stand beneath the weight
but sometimes crawling is enough

and when I may, I'll drink in the view
slow to a pause for a minute or two
and as I go, I'll hold my head high, way up in the sky
even losing it in the clouds for all I care

I'm walking good as blind with map and compass misaligned
and my intuition's rarely on the money
but still, my disposition is mostly sunny
beneath this gloomy ol' face of mine

I tread tip-toe 'round each corner 'cause who knows what I'll see next
maybe next time I'll see the sea
reaching out her tender arms to me
just waiting to hold me close

so each chance I get, I'll drink in the view
slow to a pause, share the moment with you
and as we go, we'll hold our heads high, way up in the sky
even losing them in the clouds for all we care

and when I may, I'll stand totally still
in the deepest of valleys, on the tallest of hills
and as I wait, maybe I'll celebrate just being alive

'cause being alive's a pretty good way to be
being alive's a pretty good way to be
so I hope you'll keep on being alive with me
'cause being alive's a pretty good way to be
it's the only way that I know how to be
