Looking at what I see
What does living mean to me
All that I can ever be is just a man
And the most you can ever do is the best you can

Riding on the world go round
Being me and a what I am
What I am, I'm just a man
And the most you can ever do is the best you can

And what I've found is mostly worth it all
The wisdom of the future is the past
In city brouges and wise old southern drawls
The words that say the most say things that last
