Lyrics
.You've traveled so far, the wind in your face
G A
you're thinking you've found the one special place
D
where all your dreams will walk out in line,
G
and follow the course you've made in your mind
D Bm
CH: Well, it isn't gonna be that way---
A
It isn't gonna be-----that way

I came on my own
and felt much like you
i thought i was king
and knew what to do
but everything burned
and fell from my hand
i had to turn back
and build a new plan

It isn't gonna be-----that way

if i were a god
id give you a clue
this minute would crack
and id go through
and id walk out in time
where no one has been
and come back to you
and tell what id seen

youll just have to live and see
what you find
take it from there
and follow the signs
think you can live
and dream your own fate
you think you can wish
and walk through the gate

It isn't gonna be-----that way
