Lost in a boat on the ocean
Lost in a ship out at sea
Lost in the dark of misfortune
Where is a light I can see
Where is a light I can see
Where is the highway to heaven
Where is the love we all need
Where is the peace that we long for
Where is the man who is free

Here in the heart there is freedom
Here in the heart there is peace
Here in the heart is the answer
To questions much deeper than these

You've got to hold on tightly
Let go lightly
It's only surrender, it's all in the game
If you just hold on tightly
Let go lightly
There's always forgiveness and no one to blame

Some will take fame over fortune
Some will take love over gold
Some will pray only for power
Some never want to grow old
Some see the day that is coming
Some only see what has passed
Someone will always be first in line
Someone will always be last

Here in the heart there is freedom
Here in the heart there is peace
Here in the heart is the answer
To questions much deeper than these

You've got to hold on tightly
Let go lightly
It's only surrender, it's all in the game
If you just hold on tightly
Let go lightly
There's always forgiveness and no one to blame
