I've seen shadow, I've seen shine
I know what and what is not mine
I've seen glitter and I've seen gold
And I've heard everything I've been told
And I don't want to spend my life time walking
A trail of tears
I don't want to spend my whole life walking
Along a trail of tears
Trail of tears
Well you know battle, you know war
You know what and what you are for
Scared of you and I'm scared of me
Scared of letting my future be
And I don't want to spend my life time walking
A trail of tears
I don't want to spend my life time walking
A trail of tears
Trail of tears
Nobody in their right mind
Could fail to see unless they were blind
It's gone, true love has gone
Nobody wants to throw it away
But oh my darling how can I stay
When it's gone, good has gone
I've seen shadow, I've seen shine
I know what and what is not mine
I've seen glitter, I've seen gold
And I've heard everything I've been told
And I don't want to spend my life time walking
A trail of tears
I don't want to spend my whole life walking
Along trail of tears
Trail of tears
