In my youth I was enchanted
Took the good, good life for granted
Thought the better things were handed out for free
But since then I've learned that living
Does require a bit of giving
And some things that I'd been missing now I see

And there was a time when I was slow
To lend a helping hand

And become the judge and jury of my time
And the life I thought so splendid
Turned before me to be mended
Placing realms where I intended not to climb

And the world that used to fall in step
Beneath my guiding hands

But it's changed a lot since then

Since then (Since then) I've found a new day
Since then (Since then) the shackles that bound
Have been (Have been) unshaclked (un-bound)
Since when my pride was always pushing me
To be a bigger man
I'm still trying and I've learned a lot since then

Since then (Since then) I've made a new way
Since then (Since then) I've found a new day
Since then (Since then) the shackles that bound
Have been (Have been) unshaclked (un-bound)
Since when my pride was always pushing me
To be a bigger man
I'm still trying and I've learned a lot since then
I'm still trying and I've learned a lot since the
