man in motion (st. elmo’s fire) lyrics – david foster

growin’ up
you don’t see the writin’ on the wall
p*ssin’ by
movin’ straight ahead you knew it all

but maybe sometime
if you feel the pain
you’ll find you’re all alone
everything has changed

play the game
you know you can’t quit until it’s won
soldier on
only you can do what must be done

you know in some way
you’re a lot like me
you’re just a prisoner
and you’re tryin’ to break free

i can see a new horizon
underneath the blazin’ sky
i’ll be where the eagle’s
flyin’ higher and higher

gonna be your man in motion
all i need is a pair of wheels
take me where my future’s lyin’
st. elmo’s fire

ooh
burnin’ up
don’t know just how far that i can go
(just how far i go)
soon be home
only just a few miles down the road

i can make it
i know i can
you broke the boy in me
but you won’t break the man

i can see a new horizon
underneath the blazin’ sky
i’ll be where the eagle’s
flyin’ higher and higher

gonna be your man in motion
all i need is a pair of wheels
take me where my future’s lyin’
st. elmo’s fire

i can climb the highest mountain
cross the wildest sea
i can feel st. elmo’s fire burnin’ in me
burnin’ in me

just once in his life
a man has his time
and my time is now
and i’m comin’ alive

i can hear the music playin’
i can see the banners fly
feel like you’re back again
and hope ridin’ high

gonna be your man in motion
all i need is a pair of wheels
take me where my future’s lyin’
st. elmo’s fire

i can see a new horizon
underneath the blazin’ sky
i’ll be where the eagle’s
flyin’ higher and higher

gonna be your man in motion
all i need is a pair of wheels
take me where my future’s lyin’
st. elmo’s fire

i can climb the highest mountain
cross the wildest sea
i can feel st. elmo’s fire burnin’ in me

burnin’
burnin’ in me
i can feel it burnin’
ooh, burnin’ inside of me
