Lyrics


Everyone's waiting to see if you're coming
Outta your shell for a while
Cupid and Casper were asking about ya
You used to be so wild

I know how it is, you get drunk at a party
It seems there's someone you should call
Then the cycle begins; you decide to stay in
You don't talk to anyone at all

Never know what you might find
You never know what you leave behind

This is the beginning of a great adventure
Now's not the time, not the time to step aside

I've had my share of missteps and delusions
Head trips and tails that are tall
Every conclusion is better than never
Happily after all

You dig yourself out of the tangled-up barbed wire
Fightin' over every wall
And then you get over; you pull yourself up
You pull yourself up by the straps of your overalls

Never know what you might find
You never know what you leave behind

I'm right behind you
Behind you all the way
And when I find you
We'll be on our way

Everyone's waiting to see if you're coming
Outta your shell for a while
Cupid and Casper were asking about ya
You used to be so wild

And this is the beginning of a great adventure
Now's not the time, not the time to step aside

This is the beginning of a great adventure
Now's not the time to leave it behind
Leavin' with you
