Take Those Empty Words

Many years ago
As a young boy
I was often told
Study hard, and don’t let go
Of the dreams inside your mind

Still the others say
Hey, son, it doesn’t work that way
Life is hard, no time to play
Don’t want to get left behind

Well, they say everybody knows
That “that’s the way it goes“

Well, I say “no“
Tell ‘em that it just ain’t so
Let ‘em talk, and I will make my way

Well, I don’t care
‘bout people talking anywhere
This is who I am, and who I’ll stay

So take those empty words, and go away
Just take those empty words and go away

As the years go by
Our dreams can sometimes pass us by
Responsibilities multiply
And we just get on with our lives

So many things to know
Places, we have to go
Where to find the time, I just don’t know
Gotta be a better way

And they say, “everybody knows “
That “that’s the way it goes“

Well, I say “no“
Tell ‘em that it just ain’t so
Let ‘em talk, and I will make my way

Well, I don’t care
‘bout people talking anywhere
This is who I am, and who I’ll stay

So take those empty words, and go away
Just take those empty words and go away

Time goes by
Often I wonder why
Some succeed
And some just go astray

Is it all our energy ?
Something, we just can’t see
We journey on and accept the price we pay
As we trust our heart, and hope it won’t betray

Looking back at all the years
We’ve overcome so many fears
Our accomplishments, they all appear
‘Cause we followed our own way

The path is always hard
We’re pushed and pulled to play every card
But through it all, we don’t discard
All the dreams inside our mind

‘Cause they say “everybody knows“
That “that’s the way it goes“….

Well, I say “no“
Tell ‘em that it just ain’t so
Let ‘em talk, and I will make my way

Well, I don’t care
‘bout people talking anywhere
This is who I am, and who I’ll stay

So take those empty words, and go away
Take those empty words and go away
