Halfway Home

I’m like a young man
I’m like a young man
Running in an old man’s shoes
In this race I know we all lose

Young girl once said to me
Young girl once said to me
You too will soon grow old
From that day to this I’ve done what I was told

I know what I’m running from
I know what I’m running from
But I don’t know what I’m running to
Heaven’s vague reward’s not for me and you

We’re out here halfway home
We’re out here halfway home
Out where the four winds blow
Are we headed north or south I don’t know

Sometimes we cannot see
Sometimes we cannot see
I was carrying the weight of pride
Back in the days before my father died

You are my final love
You are my final love
You own what’s left of me
I wish I’d saved you more of what I used to be

We’re out here halfway home
We’re out here halfway home
Out where the four winds blow
Are we headed north or south I don’t know
