Lyrics

When I was a boy I learned a few things
It’s a sin to kill mockingbirds and bees can sting
One of these is obvious, the other takes some thought
Some things you learn the hard way
And some things you must have forgot

2001: a godforsaken year
I learned about love and I learned about fear
Love is always patient and fear can make you blind
They both felt like bright lights burning a New York sky

One of these days I’ll have it all figured out
What it all means what this life is about
If I learn from mistakes and I listen to the wise
Keep my hands on the plow and my eyes on the prize

I’ll hold on

Two thoughts you must keep in the back of your mind
An eye for an eye keeps the whole world blind
If violence is your answer the questioning is wrong
You gotta look inside your heart and spread all of your love

One of these days I’ll have it all figured out
What it all means what this life is about
If I learn from mistakes and I listen to the wise
Keep my hands on the plow and my eyes on the prize

I’ll hold on
