Something To Go On Print E-mail

Everybody’s got to have that something to go on
Secret words they whisper to themselves before dawn
Everybody’s got ideas they have to believe in
Gets them where they’re going got them where they’ve been

A guy I know likes bars and crowds
Picks up tabs and plays the clown
He dreams of learning how to fly
Counting clouds as they go by

Everybody’s got to have that something to go on
Crosses hanging on the wall or Buddhas in bronze
Everyone should have someone to whisper to softly
Everybody’s got to have a hope and a dream

One guy I know likes poker games
Likes to bluff and likes the babes
The man I know, half mystery
At home alone writes poetry

For yesterday to become today
We need something to go on

Everybody’s got to have that something to go on
Secret words they whisper to themselves before dawn
Everybody’s got ideas they have to believe in
Gets them where they’re going got them where they’ve been

A girl I loved throughout high school
Always played by golden rules
Left me to become a nun
Counting beads till Jesus comes

For yesterday to become today
We need something to go on

Everybody’s got to have that something to go on
Crosses hanging on the wall or Buddhas in bronze
Everyone should have someone to whisper to softly
Everybody’s got to have a hope and a dream

Something to go on, something to go on, something to go on
