Lyrics
Here I go again
I see your footsteps running up and down my brain
And in my darkest hour
I see your face (I see your face)
If I can see you, why can't I be with you?
I know the mountain's high
But we can climb if we try

Oh, happy is a bumpy road
We can make it, I know
Oh, happy is a bumpy road
We can make it, I know (If we try)

Like children holding hands
If you slip, I know I will help you stand
'Cause in my solitude
You give me hope (You give me hope)
So if I can see you, why can't I be with you?
I know the struggle's great
But buried arms we can break, I know

Oh, happy is a bumpy road
We can make it, I know
Oh, happy is a bumpy road
We can make it, I know (If we try)
Yeah

So if I can see you, why can't I be with you?
(Baby, baby)
I know the struggle's great
But buried arms we can break, I know

Oh, happy is a bumpy road
We can make it, I know
Oh, happy is a bumpy road
Love is a heavy load
Oh, happy is a bumpy road
We can make it, I know
Happy is a bumpy road
Oh, love is a heavy load
Said, happy is a bumpy road
Oh, love is a heavy load
Oh, happy is a bumpy road
(Love is a heavy load, ooh-ooh, if we try)
