lyrics

I don't want to sleep for too long
You sometimes ask if I wonder what we'd be like
If maybe you were never gone
I admit I think about it sometimes
I admit I think about it sometimes

But I don't think
I could ever be
All the things that you want me to be
I don't think I can ever be
All things that God wants me to be
I don't think I will ever be
Everything I always dreamed I would be

There's a girl living out in the woods
She pulls a record down from her shelf
It's one I gave her
Hope she will never tell
Before a mirror
Takes a good look at herself
She is holding a brand new babe
Says, "Hey, was this supposed to save
me from drudgery? All the monotony?
Well, look at where true love has gotten me."

And I don't think she will ever be
All the things that I want her to be
She don't think she can ever be
All the things that God wants her to be
Deep down I know that we will never be
All the things that we strive to be

It's all in how we perceive
It's all in how we proceed
It's all in how we perceive
In the way we move forward
The way we proceed

So take my left hand, girl, and walk with me
Baby, take my left hand
And come take a walk with me
