I can feel it in the darkness, getting closer in the night
Like a sacred song, you linger on, you give me the wings of flight
And I love your sense of power, every hour, every need
When the red light shows, your arms enclose like the pillars of destiny

With one step forward, I know I can leave this behind
Never look backward, I want to move through space through time
I want to get to it seek and you'll find check the world do it
It's my life
There's a star, shines over you and I
It's my life I'm just
Keeping my soul alive

There's talk of revolution, there's no solution to our plight
A red guitar can get you far but you still know how to fight
They say all roads come together, every shoulder to the the wheel
Solid gold future unfolds when you give me the hands that heal

With one step forward, I know I can leave this behind
Never look backward, I want to move through space through time
I want to get to it seek and you'll find check the world do it
It's my life
There's a star, shines over you and I
It's my life I'm just
Keeping my soul alive

I'm looking out and I call your name I go running in a circle
But I can't get back again and I'm calling I need you here
My whole life took a tumble and I'm so filled up with fear
My life feels like a runaway train I'm leading through a tunnel
And I can't get back again

It's my life
With one step forward, I know I can leave this behind
Never look backward, I want to move through space through time
I want to get to it seek and you'll find check the world do it
It's my life
It's my life keeping my soul alive
I'm just keeping my soul alive
It's my life keeping my soul alive
I'm just keeping my soul alive
It's my life
