I guess growing isn’t hard to do
Just stand against the wall
Once I was just two feet high
Today I’m six feet tall

But knowing who to listen to
Is something else again
Words just whistle ‘round my head
Like seasons in the wind

All across the water the clouds are sailing
They won’t let me look at the sky
All I want to do is try and find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes

In searching for the way to go
I’ve followed all the rules
The way they say to chooses between
The wise men and the fools

I listen to the words they say
I read what I should read
I do whatever’s right to do
Try to be what I should be

Someone let me in I think the sky is falling
Seems I’ve gotten lost on my way
All I want to do is try and find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes

Ah, but wisdom isn’t underground
Nor on a mountainside
And where am I to take myself
There’s no place here to hide

All across the universe the stars are fading
Seems we’ve gotten lost on our way
All I want to do is try and find myself
Come and let me look in your eyes
Come and let me look in your eyes
Come and let me look in your eyes

Words by John Denver and Joe Henry - Music by John Denver
