Lyrics
Johnny Redeye met his Ma
And he knew that she knew what he was gonna say
But it doesn't really matter
Only today
Cause I've got bonds that I've saved up for a while
And she clipped his soft face with a knowing smile
And his face as he raised it to the sky
And the sun begin to shine
And in the morning when you rise
Be sure to know your destiny
Cause it's all worth while, all worth while
The man across the street ain't wise
You know if he was wise, if he was wise
He'd be on the other side, other side
Reach every sky to know what it's like
But I try...
I, I, I, I

I can see the road where you once flew
I'm in Pacific Street to make ends meet
And it's plain to see, and plain to see
Now I believe in what I do
The legends free, I cannot see
But it's all worth while, all worth while
Reach every sky to know what it's like
But I try...
I, I, I, I

The man across the street ain't wise
You know if he was wise, if he was wise
He'd be on the other side, other side
And in the morning when you rise
Be sure to know your destiny
Cause it's all worth while, all worth while

All worth while
