Yesterday, when you were young,
Everything you needed done was done for you.
Now you do it on your own
But you find you're all alone,
What can you do?

You and me walk on
Cause you can't go back now.

You know there will be days when you're so tired that you can't take another step,
The night will have no stars and you'll think you've gone as far as you will ever get

But you and me walk on
Cause you can't go back now
And yeah, yeah, go where you want to go
Be what you want to be,
If you ever turn around, you'll see me.

I can't really say why everybody wishes they were somewhere else
But in the end, the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself

And you and me walk on
Yeah you and me walk on
Cause you can't go back now
Walk on, walk on, walk on
You can't go back now

    this song makes me think about my dad. he was everything to me, and all i "needed done was done for" me. now he's gone, but "if you ever turn around, you'll see me."

    I think this song is at the end of a really good relationship. They know that they aren't meant for each other but that they will always care about each other. But- they just need to walk on alone because "the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself. "

    Its really a nice song and the lyrics really fit to friends that will soon in their lives would take another journey which is to walk alone and to find his way to success.
