One day I'd walk from this tiny town
As soon as I’d put that first foot down.
And I’d see wonders the world ‘round
After I’d put that second foot down.
Adventures and treasures would surely abound
After I’d put that third foot down.
And my head might even wear a crown
After I’d put that fourth foot down.
And a love like no other would be what I had found
After I’d put that fifth foot down.
But my timid feet waited here, dreaming of then
Now the clock is clucking “If not now, well, when?”
You can’t chase your dreams if you’re standing around
And you can’t do much walking when you’re six feet down.
