mystery of being lyrics – yardbirds

in the mystery of being
sometimes when it’s not so easy seeing
where you’re going, what will be tomorrow
wondering about the path to follow

in the darkness we b*mp into each other
and it’s hard for me to call you brother
in my heart the questions are burning
someone said the journey is the learning

chorus

if i could shine a light on where i’m going
if i could shine a light on what i’m doing
if i could find the love that might be freeing
in this mystery of being

in the mystery of living
seems to me there’s such a joy in giving
without sadness how could there be elation
feel my life is down to my creation

chorus

if i could shine a light on where i’m going
if i could shine a light on what i’m doing
if i could find the love that might be freeing
in this mystery of being
