lyrics

Running all day in this crystal maze
I lost my way and I don't know where to go, oh no
My sense of direction, my thoughtful inspection
Is full of perplexion
When I think it through
Don't you?

I follow this road with my heavy load
Kick a stone, drag my tired feet
In the heat
I stumble and fall, reduced to a crawl
Give out a call, begging on my knees
Help me please

Then I lift my eyes to see
It is, my friend, no mystery
And I ask you for the way
And this is what I hear you say

You’ve got to be strong
It’s time to move on
So keep holding on
The good times will come

Sat in this cage, filliing with rage
Stuck on a stage
Trying to write my script
Ill-equipped

I pull out a pen, but nobody cares
They all sit and stare
At my tragedy
Hopelessly

Then I see your friendly face
Will I get out of this place?
With a deep and heartfelt sigh
You smile back with this reply

You’ve got to be strong
It’s time to move on
So keep holding on
The good times will come

You wait until the sun goes down
Before you can see the stars
You wait until the raindrops fall
Before the rainbow comes

This is what I say to you
If you’re ever feeling blue
I’ll be with you, never fear
And this advice then you will hear

You’ve got to be strong
It’s time to move on
So keep holding on
The good times will come

You’ve got to be strong
It’s time to move on
So keep holding on
The good times will come
