Destination

25 years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the whole world's made up of this brotherhood of man
for WHATEVER that means

And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out, what's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning and I step outside
And I take A deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs,
What's goin' on



And I try, oh my God, do I try
I try all the time in this institution
And I pray, oh my God, do I pray
I pray every single day FOR A RESOLUTION!


And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out, what's in my head
And I, I'm feeling, a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning and I step outside
And I take deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs,
WHAT'S GOIN' ON!!

 25 years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a..........

Good song. I usually belt that one out when I'm in the vehicle...alone of course...and without the dog...and with the windows closed...

LOL!! Yes It's one of my fave tunes and Linda Perry is a rock solid song writer, but unfortunately this was her "one hit wonder" song. She's written hits for Pink, Christina Aguilara, etc. Notice I DIDNT put in a link for the actual tune? That's cuz most will start to sing once they get into the lyrics, hehe, did you? Thanks for the comment as I can envision!! :o)
