I guess growin' isn't hard to do, just stand against the wall
Once I was just two feet high
Today I'm six feet tall
But knowin' who to listen to, is somethin' else again
Words just whistle around my head
like seasons in the wind
All across the water the clouds are sailin'
they won't let me look at the sky
All I want to do is try to find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes

In searchin' for the way to go I've followed all the rules
The way they say to choose between the wise men and the fools
I listened to the words they say
I read what I should read
I do whatever's right to do
Try to be what I should be
Someone let me in I think the sky is falling
Seems I've gotten lost on my way
All I want to do is try to find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes
But wisdom isn't underground, nor on a mountainside
Where am I to take myself, there's no place here to hide Where can I hide
All across the universe the stars are fadin' seems I've gotten lost on my way
All I want to do is try to find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes
Come and let me look in your eyes
Come and let me look in your eyes
