Song Description

Looking back on life with gratitude and wonder while looking forward to more.

Story Behind the Song

Again, I just started finger-picking on my beloved Martin guitar (Marty) and that led to this song of gratitude for the wonderful life I have been given.


V1: Come walk with me and you will see
The world through my eyes
Then maybe you'll know what keeps me so
Glad to be alive
My friends are on my left
And family on my right
And in between are the wonders I've seen
In this walk through life

V2: There once was a girl whose mission in the world
Was to be the best she could be
She followed her heart and refused to play the part
Expected by society
She suffered a few heartaches
But learned from her mistakes
And never looked back except to laugh
At her naivete

Bridge: If there's a lesson to be taken from this song
It's that we're always learning right from wrong
We don't always do what we probably should
Even the bad times teach us something good

V3: So here we stand, hand-in-hand
Where do we go from here? I don't know
What I want to do is to walk with you
Wherever you go
There'll be lows and there will be highs
If we open our minds and our eyes
I guarantee that we will see
All life has to show
