Graduated High School class of 96
Nameless face in the middle of the small town clique
No yellow tassel to adorn my gown
I barely made my pass but momma sure was proud oh

They tried to tell me change was gonna come
But I was frightened by the thought of my own evolution
Jumped in the car, crunk up the radio
Shook off my innocence and lost my self control

Yeah I had a long, long way to go
Long, long way to go
The whole world in front of me and time moving so slow
I had a long, long way to go

Well I fell off track somewhere along the way
Chained all my dreams of a mirror and a razor blade
Momma said I guess it's just a part of growing up
And I've spent my last five years trying to straighten up

But I've got a long, long way to go
A long, long way to go
I've still got my deamons yeah they're knocking at my door
I've got a long, long way to go

Momma died 3 years ago just yesterday
And I placed a rose beneath that tree where she lay
Then I said a prayer there in here memory
And in some sad strange way it reminded me

That I've got a long, long way to go
A long, long way to go
To live is to struggle and to struggle is to grow
You know I've got a long, long way to go
A long, long way to go
A long, long way to go
The whole world in front of me and time moving so slow
I've got a long, long way to go
