Matisyahu – Obstacles lyrics

Obstacles, they come and go,
That's the name of the game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold,
Play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole,
Path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold,
Play your cards

Two steps forward,
Take one step back
Every time I get on track light fades to black
When the curtain drops back and I step to my destiny
I find my freedom right in front of me

It's in your eyes, I see when we dance to the beat
And these sweet melodies ride in on a breeze
Trees part for me but these sharks still circle through the park

I look to you
It's in my nature to listen to you
I ran after you and the lights went blue
Me and you, you and me,
Share my heart with you
You're my family now

Obstacles, they come and go, that's the name of the game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold,
Play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole, path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold, play your cards

Once upon a time I ran to you
Banned myself to find your wealth
And return to the land of truth,
Found myself all alone as the stars, they kiss

Still running after you through this wilderness
At dawn I track snow through backyards and front lawns
I'm up late, wide awake,
I'm reborn as day breaks and gets calm

I look to you
It's in my nature to listen to you
I ran after you and the lights went blue
Me and you, you and me,
Share my heart with you
You're my family now

Obstacles, they come and go,
That's the name of the game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold, play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole,
Path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold, play your cards then fold

Sifting through the sand
A man is just a man
No matter how you fan the flame,
It all comes out the same
In the end you were my friend

Sifting through the sand
A man is just a man
No matter how you fan the flame,
It all comes out the same
In the end you were my friend

Obstacles, they come and go,
That's the name of the game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold,
Play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole,
Path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold, play your cards, then fold
