Falling Upward - Lyrics

A dragonfly landed on my friend linn's fingertip
Reminding us we need to rest on this the long strange trip
But also we did whisper that some change was on it's way
The old world it is crumbling and the new one starts today

I played the smart professor, yes I tried it on for size
I'm done with facts and figures now I hunger to be wise
And I find some okay is steeping inside this veil of tears
So call it delusion I call it getting on in years

Falling upward, the pain of youth is gone
One day my plaintive morning turned into a lovely song
Falling upward, each step acquired victory
I'm finally inching forward toward the man I long to be

And on heart each morning take my dose of daily bread
And head off in the battle against these voices in my head
They say I'm not worthy, that I'm not too scuffed up to pray
Well if there is a devil surely that is what he'd say

The world's a great seductress and it wants me on it's team
Best to heed the words of those that woke up from the dream
So I'm reading all the holy books and this is my 40th year
Rejoice they say, have courage, be content and of good cheer

Falling upward, the pain of youth is gone
One day my plaintive morning turned into a lovely song
Falling upward, each step acquired victory
I'm finally inching forward toward the man I long to be

A life is very short it's true and I left here wondering why
The days they last forever and the years they sail by
And the kid in me is confused about this man's face in the mirror
It once was my complexion now it's my conscience I want clear
I cannot fix or save the world and I know that that's alright
Solutions they aren't coming from the left or from the right
Like a great say said in ohio
Love will heal this mess!
And now my contribution - loving more and speaking less

Falling upward, the pain of youth is gone
One day my plaintive morning turned into a lovely song
Falling upward, each step acquired victory
I'm finally inching forward toward the man I long to be

Finally inching forward toward the man I long to be

Thank God I'm falling upward toward the man I long to be
