Life's a journey

Let life take you on a journey
Take a chance and let go of every thing you know

Follow the river to the sea
Go look at the horizon
Know what it is to be free
Don't think about the journey ahead, just go

Let the rain wash you
Let the sun dry you
The land will feed you

Time is now and can't be changed
The past has gone, the future will come
Now's the time to hold the reigns

Let your intuition guide you
And your soul lead you
Everything can be achieved 
You just have to believe

Appreciate every sound to be heard
And be aware of every smell
Look with your eyes, feel with your hands
Use your senses to the full
And know of things you've never seen

Don't be scared to travel, just follow the road
You will know the way to go, when you're ready to know

Let the wind fill your sails
Let the breeze take you away
Chase your dreams and you'll always find a means
