When the princes and the peasants each look back at you the same
When a friend that you had known before can't quite recall your name
When each morning there's a cloudy sky to keep the sun from showin'
Then you know you are your own sometimes that's all that keeps ya goin' mhm

Neath the chimneys and the rooftops of a village safe and sound
No one sees the face nor hears the feet that walk the morning ground
And the stillness of the alleys and the highways keeps a growin'
So you say you are your own and that alone will keep ya goin' mhm

[ ac. Guitar ]

Through the dampness of the dawn now by the road you walk alone
And you think on days when you had laughed or of a love you'd known
But your head is low avoidin' thoughts of times you'll soon be knowin'
When to say you are your own ain't quite enough to keep ya goin' mhm
