lyrics

I been walking around
Head down, wondering when I'd been found
Thinkin' 'bout the day I'd be six feet under the ground

I felt I was there in the cold,
eyes closed, not hearin' a sound
I don't wanna die, but I don't feel alive in this town

So I got up
I'd had enough
"It's a new day,"
I heard you say…

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be at your back
May the sun shine on your face
Just forget about the past

You got your whole life before you
What you done is in the rear-view
No need to think about tomorrow
Who you are is up to you

Now I'm at the start, back where I fell apart
Both feet on the ground
But my head is in the clouds,
my heart is beating loud to the sound

of your voice in my head, louder than the rest
Telling me I've been found
So I walk tall, and I sing along with the crowd

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be at your back
May the sun shine on your face
Just forget about the past

You got your whole life before you
What you done is in the rear-view
No need to think about tomorrow
Who you are is up to you

You don't have to wait any longer
You don't have to be alone
There's someone who loves you

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be at your back
May the sun shine on your face
Just forget about the past

You got your whole life before you
What you done is in the rear-view
No need to think about tomorrow
Who you are is up to you
