Every Long Journey

Every long journey is made in small steps,
Is made of courage, the feeling you get
When you know it's been waiting, been waiting for you.
The journey's the only thing you want to do

And we cannot know what you go through
Or see through your eyes,
But we will surround you with pride undisguised,
In any direction, whatever you view,
You're taking our love there with you.

On every long journey what drives you to go
Is half what you know and half what you don't.
The secret's been waiting; your heart's got the key.
The secret's the only thing you want to see.


Every long journey begins with a dream,
A spirit with courage to make it all real.
The dream has been calling, been calling to you;
The dream is the only thing you want to do.
