There stood an old man,
Tears filling his eyes.
They were tearing the courthouse down
And he was saying good-bye.
With ev’rything changing,
Does anything stay the same —
A hope you can cling to,
Someone who needs you,
A love that can lead you everyday?
There goes a young man,
He’s walking alone,
No place to look back to,
He’s gotta go on.
For ev’ry ending is just a beginning you know,
And good-bye is just hello, don’t you know.
Go, talk to the old man,
Help him understand.
Walk by the young man’s side,
And lend him a hand.
