We made the distance  
Yeah  we made the day. 

You made all the difference 
'Cause you found the way. 

Without your wisdom 
Lord  where would we be 
Lost in the wilderness  
Somewhere out at sea. 

But you were there 
Through the days of wine and madness  
When I'd always put you down. 

You were there 
Through my joys and my sadness 
And you never let me down. 

You found the meaning 
And helped me to see 
Where I was going to 
All that I could be. 

Without permission 
You turned the key. 
You climbed the prison wall 
Deep inside of me. 

You were there 
Through the days of wine and madness 
When I'd turn and put, put you down. 

You were there 
Through my joys and my sadness 
And you never let me down. 

You were there 
Through the days of wine and madness 
When I'd turn and put, put you down. 

You were there 
Through my joys and my sadness 
And you never let me down. 

Let me down. 
You were there. 
You were there. 
You were there
