Chorus:
Never gonna tell you what to do
Take the best of you - tell you what to say
Try and show the way, you've got to make it yours today
If it gets you on your way

See it don't matter - I'll find my own way home
You better do what you can
You're trying - but what can a poor boy do
We're hoping, the best that you can
We're wishing, hopin' and a prayin' now that
You've landed back on your feet
You're gonna, rise from the ashes boy
You're gonna rise from the street
Chorus:
(Musical Interlude)
When you get the chance, take it with both hands
Make it yours today, it might pass away
Dream yourself a dream, show me what you've seen
Take me where you've been, Life, I need a dream
La la la la, la la la la la, la la la la
(repeat from beginning of song)
La, la, la, la, la la la la
Tell me what to do, tell me what to say (repeat)
