Song Description

A moral compass is a good thing to have but sometimes it might need adjusting as life goes on.

Story Behind the Song

It dawned on me that my sense of right and wrong, of moral and immoral, adjusts the longer I live and the more interactions I experience. It's good to have principles but one must be prepared to continually adapt them to real life.


V1: Everyone laughed, nobody cried when we came face-to-face
With the fact that history lied and fiction had taken its place
We knew all along the story was wrong but noone was willing to squeal
We all pretended until the end the illusion was real

Chorus 1: Take life a step at a time
Try to keep an open mind
Reality looks differently
Depending whose side you're on

V2: When I was young, I took a vow to speak the truth, come what may
If I'd known then what I know now, I might have chosen a different way
Sometimes it's wise to tell little lies rather than break a pure heart
Now I realize how compromise is truly a fine art

Cho 2: Take life a step at a time
Find your own rhythm and rhyme
Learn how to go - go with the flow
And you'll be fine

Take life a step at a time
Try to keep an open mind
Reality looks differently
Depending whose side you're on

V3: I've come to accept I can't always get what I want or think I need
Life has a way of making us pay for indulging in fantasy
I guess in the end the story depends on how much we care or we don't
All I can say is maybe one day we'll know the truth or we won't
