I walk along my road alone
I pass into the future and leave the past behind
I try to look beyond and see the course ahead
But the shadow of the past lies across my path
And obscures the road ahead
I look beyond tomorrow and see the light ahead
I journey on in earnest and hope I’ll find the way
But the shadow of the past lies across my path
And obscures the road ahead
I try to see beyond and look across the void
But the shadow of the past lies across my path
And obscures the road ahead
And now I see beyond

I walk along my road alone

I pass into the future and leave the past behind

I try to look beyond and see the course ahead

But the shadow of the past lies across my path

And obscures the road ahead

I look beyond tomorrow and see the light ahead

I journey on in earnest and hope I’ll find the way

But the shadow of the past lies across my path

And obscures the road ahead

I try to see beyond and look across the void

But the shadow of the past lies across my path

And obscures the road ahead

And now I see beyond
