Rain-drops fall and you feel low
Do you ever feel it's useless
Do you feel like letting go
Well do you ever stop and do you wonder
Will the world ever change
Yes, well just how long
Will it take to have it all re-arranged
Tell me why these things are still the same
Tell me why no one can seem to learn from mistakes
Take my hand if you don't know where you're goin'
I'll understand--I've lost the way myself
Oh, won't you, oh don't take that old road, it leads to nowhere
We must return before the clock strikes twelve
Oh, it's so easy to do nothin' when you're busy night and day
Take a step in one direction, ooh yeah
Take a step the other way
So, don't quit tryin' when you stumble
Don't give up should you fall
Oh, won't you keep on searchin' for the pathway
That leads you through the wall
Don't look back or you'll be left behind
Don't look back or you will never find peace of mind
Take my hand if you don't know where you're goin'
I'll understand, you know I've, I've lost the way myself
Now listen here, I don't want to, I don't want to take that old road it leads to nowhere
We must return before the clock strikes twelve
