Don Henley – Passin' Thru lyrics

It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru

I have stood up on the mountain
I have seen the other side
I have wrestled with the devil
I have wrestled with my pride

I have been down in the valley
Stood out in the rain
I have seen my love forsaken
Felt the pleasure and the pain

If there's one thing that's for certain
Yes, one chord that rings true
It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru

I have cried in tears of sadness
Cried in tears of joy
I have found a life worth livin'
From the peace within the noise

I have turned my back on hatred
Lyin', prejudice and greed
Found the future in the present
Found hope within a seed

If there's one thing that's for certain
There's one chord that rings true
It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru

Passin' thru, passin' thru
It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru

I have seen my bucket empty
Seen my well run dry
But there's water down the road
And I'm only goin' by

If I'm settin' on dead ready
When my chances come to knock
I'll make it where I'm going
Standin' tall just like a rock

If there's one thing that's for certain
There's one chord that rings true
It's a wicked world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru

Passin' thru, passin' thru
It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru
Yeah, it's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru

I have stood up on the mountain
I have seen the other side
I have wrestled with the devil
I have wrestled with my pride

I have been down in the valley
I have stood out in the rain
I have seen my love forsaken
Felt the pleasure and the pain

I have cried in tears of sadness
I have cried in tears of joy
I have found a life worth livin'
From the peace within the noise

I have turned my back on hatred
Lyin', prejudice and greed
Found the future in the present
Found hope within a seed

I have seen my bucket empty
I have seen my well run dry
But there's water down the road
And I'm only goin' by

If I'm settin' on dead ready
When my chances come to knock
I'll make it where I'm going
Standin' tall just like a rock

Passin' thru, passin' thru
It's a mighty world we live in
But the truth is we're only passin' thru
Passin' thru, passin' thru
