I do believe this road’s for going
I’ll be on it soon enough
my baby wants a mother, so do I
when it’s all too tough, yeah

I do believe there’s something coming
hope it wakes us up
the big hand’s pointing this way
sometimes we love too much

it’s clear
we’re here
it’s clear

see me old and staggered
or young and swaggering
where we’re going, where we’ve been
is all that matters, is in between, aah

it’s clear
we’re here
it’s clear

all that’s sense is lost in static
we’re here against our will
hush there’s time and plenty of it
oh-ah, standing still

I do believe there’s always better
then again there’s always worse

it’s clear
we’re here
it’s clear

yeah…we’re here
{soft vocalise}
we’re here
