lyrics

How many friends did I leave, and how much choice did I see
Did I really believe that I could be, or did I just think that I would be

Thousands of miles in my car, and a beat up electric guitar
Never ever thought I’d drive so far;

Don’t you ever want to break clean, Maybe you know what I mean
Someone inside of me seen what I may be

He told me to go no holds barred; when I got there he gave me his card
His name you just wouldn’t believe, His first name success, his last name, succeed


So I’m keeping the lime of the light in my eyes
Storing the truth of that day in my mind
Keeping the lime of the light in my eyes


I don’t try to be glad, and I don’t try to be sad
He just stood there looking at me

It’s not that it’s all so bad, but sometimes it just makes me mad
Success, succeed, he’s a hard man to be.
Success, succeed, he’s out there he’s teasing me

So I’m keeping the lime of the light in my eyes
Storing the truth of that day in my mind
So I’m keeping the lime of the light in my eyes
Storing the truth of that day in my mind

Keeping the light,
keeping the light in my eyes,
in my eyes,

Say it’s so, say it’s so
cause I want to know



So as I stand here today, things didn’t work out that way
You see my God had a better plan for me

You think you what you want, you think you know what you need
Don’t be surprised when they don’t always agree. But my life today
Is more than I dared to dream



So I’m keeping the lime of the light in my eyes
Storing the truth of that day in my mind
So I’m keeping the lime of the light in my eyes
Storing the truth of that day in my mind

So I’m keeping the lime of the light in my eyes
Storing the truth of that day in my mind
So I’m keeping the lime of the light in my eyes
Storing the truth of that day in my mind
