Charlie Read – Press Toward The Mark lyrics

Following the path of least resistance
Won't always take you where you want to go.
Flights of fancy often leave you stranded
Take it from a man who ought to know.
As a child four walls could not contain me
In my mind the universe was near.
Printed pages always took me soaring,
Breaking free from gravity and fear.

Walk with two feet on the ground,
With angels hovering all around.
Keep on following your dream,
Don't fall prey to "might have been,"
Never be afraid to start,
Then press toward the mark.

In this world there are so many voices
Hypnotizing, captivating men.
In my heart I've heard a higher calling,
Now I know I can't go back again.

Throw all your yesterdays away
Work in the fields while you play.
Stay away from those who claim
Everything must stay the same
Never be afraid to start,
Then press toward the mark.
