Journey On

The world has come a long way,
Travelin’ on this road to freedom.
Everybody’s goin’ their own way,
Lookin’ for a reason to lead ‘em.
Standing at the top of a mountain,
More mountains and valleys to go.
The journey is far from over,
Maybe the road we’re on is home.

With so much before us,
This is our time to chase the dream.
This is our moment to go for our destiny.

Journey on, Journey on
You can’t stay where you are for very long.
Don’t give up, find the strength you need to journey on.
‘cause in the end, it’s not just where we go,
But how we get there and who we’ve known
On this long walk, together we will journey on.

Lookin’ back on the road behind us
We see footsteps from our past.
Loved ones who’ve touched our lives,
And too often, left us too fast.

But they are always with us,
They left handprints on our hearts.
Their lives give us strength to get up and start again.
Leaving’s not losing we win by how we live.


This is not the beginning of the end, this is but the end of a beginning.
Dance every dance, take every chance, make every moment count.
