Intro: half the world is sleeping half the world's awake half can hear their heart beat half just hear them break i am but a trav'ller been most everywhere ask me what you want to know. Chorus what a journey it has been and the end is not in sight but the stars are out tonight and they're bound to guide my way when they're shining on my life i can see a better day i won't let the darkness in what a journey it has been. Interlude: i have been to sorrow i have been to bliss where i'll be tomorrow i can only guess through the darkest desert through the deepest snow forward, always forward i go. Repeat chorus Bridge forward, always forward onward, always up catching every drop of hope in my empty cup. Repeat chorus except last word ...been what a journey it has been.
