Many's the time I've been mistaken and many times confused
Yes and I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused
Oh but I'm alright I'm alright just weary to my bones
Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant
So far away from home so far away from home

Don't know a soul who has not been battered
Don't have a friend who feels at ease
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to its knees
Oh but it's alright it's alright for we've lived so well so long
Still when I think of the road we're traveling on I wonder what's gone wrong
I can't help it I wonder what's gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
Looking back down at me smiled reassuredly
