Story Behind the Song

Inspired by Joseph Cambell.

Lyrics

The Hero's Journey
©Words and music by Chris Chickering (Chris Chickering Music, BMI) and Greg Barnhill (Gatorized Music, SESAC).

For every hero there is a road
that can take you somewhere
farther on than you've ever known

It's a journey that might
break you to your soul
but if you dare to make a go
you might find a gift inside of you
that few will ever hold
For every hero there is a road
and a way back home

I was sittin' comfortable
living in my life
The world was spinnin'
clouds were rollin' by
When suddenly the walls caved-in
and left me to the night
Right there and then
I had to decide

whether I was bold enough
to cross the great abyss
or turn around and say
"to hell with this"
Then someone whispered
there's a way to make it from the cliff
so I took a leap and found what freedom is

For every hero there is a road
that can take you somewhere
farther on than you've ever known

It's a journey that might
break you to your soul
but if you dare to make a go
you might find a gift inside of you
that few will ever hold
For every hero there is a road
and a way back home

There were those who tested me
and swore that I would fail
fair-weather friends
that left me on the trail
Through the terror of the tempest
and the walls I had to scale
I found the strength to triumph and prevail

For every hero there is a road
that can take you somewhere
farther on than you've ever known

It's a journey that might
break you to your soul
but if you dare to make a go
you might find a gift inside of you
that few will ever hold
For every hero there is a road
and a way back home

For every hero there is a road
that can take you somewhere
farther on than you've ever known

It's a journey that might
break you to your soul
but if you dare to make a go
you might find a gift inside of you
that few will ever hold
For every hero there is a road
and a way back home
and a way back home

And you find a way
You find a way
You find a way
You find a way back home
(reprise)
