Lyrics

'm gettin' near the end of my life, child
I've seen the sunrise many a time
I've seen darkness spread across the land, child
I've seen the full moon in it's glory shine

Well I've seen goodness and I've seen bad
I've been happy and I've been sad
I've seen death and I've seen birth
I've felt self-pity and I've felt self-worth
I've felt joy and I've felt sorrow
I've been down but held on 'till tomorrow
I've been sky high before a fall
I've felt love, and I've felt nothing at all

Try to see clearly in the daylight
Let yourself feel at night
It's about the love you bring to the world, child
and what you do each day to set things right

I am passing the torch to you, child
Let it burn bright as long as you can
Fan the embers of love in the darkness, child
Let it shine all over the land
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
Let it shine all over the land

Well, it's time for you to take on the world, child
Just stay true to what you feel
And with every year that passes child
You'll hear more souls cryin' out to be healed

Well you've seen goodness and you've seen bad
You've been happy and youI've been sad
You've seen death and you've seen birth
you've felt self-pity and you've felt self-worth
you've felt joy and you've felt sorrow
you've been down but held on 'till tomorrow
you've been sky high before a fall
you've felt love, and you've felt nothing at all

Try to see clearly in the daylight
Let yourself feel at night
It's about the love you bring to the world, child
and what you do each day to set things right

I am passing the torch to you, child
Let it burn bright as long as you can
Fan the embers of love in the darkness, child
Let it shine all over the land
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
Let it shine all over the land
