lyrics

The world is covered with a million roads
your mother's mother traveled long ago.
And no one's there to give you the map to the promised land
Everybody's got their struggles, ever since the dawn of man.

Just remember that the same sky has heard your grandmother cry.
Watched your father take his first breath.
For those nights that just seem endless..

You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem

My soul is covered with a million woes.
Since I discovered myself long ago.
In someone else's shoes I'm walkin', thought I was walkin' by myself.
So many other voices talkin', so many other cries for help.

Just remember that the same sky has heard your grandmother cry.
Watched your father take his first breath.
For those nights that just seem endless..

You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem.

Just keep on livin'.
Just keep on givin' like the others before. Like the others before

Just remember that the same sky has heard your grandmother cry.
Watched your Father take his first breath.
For those nights that just seem endless..

You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem, of the problem.

no- oh- oh
whoa- oh


You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem
of the world.
