Half the world is sleeping,
Half the world's awake

Half can hear their hearts beat
Half just hear them break
I am but a traveler, in most every way
Ask me what you want...to know
What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
And they're bound to guide my way
When they're shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won't let the darkness in,
What a journey it has been.
I have been to sorrow
I have been to bliss
Where I'll be tomorrow,
I can only guess
Through the darkest desert
Through the deepest snow,
Forward always forward, I go..
What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
And they're bound to guide my way
When they're shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won't let the darkness in,
What a journey it has been...
Forward, always forward...
Onward, always up...
Catching every drop of hope
In my empty cup
What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
And they're bound to guide my way
When they're shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won't let the darkness in,
What a journey it has been..2x..

    This song reflects about how each journey taken in life, leads on to another, and another, and another. It shows that no matter how tough the road may seem, the storm will pass and it would lead us to a better day. It tells us how one (the singer) has never regretted the decisions in life, and how everything, whether right or wrong, has come into place to make everything all worthwhile. There are not many people, who, at the end of life, can say that the journey has been good and fun, and there's nothing to regret about. If one can claim that, then one definitely had had a great time, and is one that is able embrace everything, good and bad.

    A journey is the act of travelling from a departure point to a destination. Physical journeys in particular encompass this ‘beginning’ process however; the physical journey is much more than that. It is a combination of the physical movement and the challenges and obstacles which can face the traveler emotionally and spiritually. The result of the journey then is often a better understanding of themselves and the world around them. This journey also could involve an inner journey as well as a physical one. Journey could imply travel, to experience different cultures, new sights, learn new things and there could be challenges that could possibly change your perspective on life and/or learn more about yourself. A journey can take many forms and could last a long time/short time to get to the destination. Although to get to the destination can be important, the journey or quest can be just as important.
