Randy Travis (born May 4, 1959) is an American country music singer and actor. Since 1985, he has recorded 20 studio albums and charted more than 50 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and 16 of these were number one hits. Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music, Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life, which sold more than three million copies. The album established him as a major force in the Neotraditional country movement. Travis followed up his successful debut with a string of platinum and multi-platinum albums. more »

Many more miles were behind him 
Than he had left to go
Closing in upon that last one 
We all must walk alone
It's the one across the end of the line
So we held on and we told stories
Of the good and bad in all
Of the power and the glory 
And the lonely days that crawled
And he said, "Heaven holds true love
And a satisfied mind."

He said, "I ain't afraid of dying
'Cause I know there's something worse:
When you have to see your reason for living go first,
And you get left behind.
Some can't think of nothing better
Than to live this life forever.
I never wanted no more than was mine,
And to lay down someday and go home
With a satisfied mind."

He said, "Don't look into the darkness.
If you want to see true black,
Look into a morning's brightness
When love ain't coming back,
And you will find right there a darkness that blinds.
And don't think wealth is ever having
All you want all to yourself;
It is found when you are giving
What you have to someone else
The only difference in the rich and the poor
Is a satisfied mind."

And one light began to fade
As one grew brighter
And he said, "I ain't afraid of dying
'Cause I know there's something worse:
When you have to see your reason for living go first,
And you get left behind.
Some can't think of nothing better
Than to live this life forever.
I never wanted no more than was mine,
And to lay down someday and go home...
Let me lay down someday and go home
With a satisfied mind."
