grand lyrics – mark crisman

followed footsteps
walked too far
all this time spent
picking at the scars

falling forward
holding back
getting tired
staying where i’m at

i’ll be a man
and i won’t cry
i am alone
and that’s alright
i don’t need a crutch to stand
i will learn to rise
above where i have been
and all i’ve known
i’ll choose my path
and i will go
i won’t let nothing hold me back
can see it clearly now
i know it will be grand

i’ve claimed weakness
far too long
my excuses
torn down, come undone

i’ll take me under
draw me in
the fighting freedom
i feel it closing in

i’ll be a man
and i won’t cry
i am alone
and that’s alright
i don’t need a crutch to stand
i will learn to rise
above where i have been
and all i’ve known
i’ll choose my path
and i will go
i won’t let nothing hold me back
can see it clearly now
i know it will be grand

why
couldn’t i see
what was best
and what was wrong
for
me
