Driftin? along with the wind, telling yourself you can?t win
It?s over and now we begin, oh yeah we are on the way
Light shining down from the east, bringing a love that won?t cease
Yeah now we are finally released, oh yeah we?re on the way.

[Chorus:]
I used to think that I was doin? all right, but now I know that I was just hanging on

Only one woman one man, just doing the best that we can
There?s so much we don?t understand, oh yeah but we?re on the way
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah

[Chorus]

Only one woman one man, just doing the best that we can
There?s so much we don?t understand, oh yeah but we?re on the way
Light shining down from the east, bringing a love that won?t cease
Yeah now we are finally released, oh yeah we?re on the way.

Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah
