THERES A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL,
IF I LOOK I CAN REALLY SEE ...
NO SADNESS, NO CRYING, NO WORRY
THAT WAS WHAT WAS PROMISED TO ME.
THE GRASS WILL BE GREENER AND LOVE ALL AROUND,
I'LL BE TAKING THAT BUS HEAVEN BOUND.
THERE WILL BE MANY PLACES TO GO
TO FIND LOVED ONES AND FRIENDS I HAVE KNOWN.

I THINK OF THESE THINGS EVERYDAY
BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHEN I'LL GO AWAY
TO MEET JESUS WHO LOVES ME VERY MUCH ...
LOVING HIM EVERYDAY IS HOW I KEEP IN TOUCH
WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING AS I GROW OLDER?

IS IT ALL OVER AS IT'S WRITTEN OR TOLD?
WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS AS YOU GO ON?
TO FIND A GOOD FRIEND TO HELP YOU BELONG?
HAS ALL THE LOVE AND TRUST FINALLY RUN OUT?
THERE ARE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO
WHEN THERE IS NO ONE THINKING ABOUT YOU,
OR TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH THEY CARE,
OR EVEN TALK OR SHARE.

SOCIETY WILL TRY TO CLAIM YOU
TO DO AND SAY WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO.
SOMETIMES IT'S BETTER TO BE BY YOURSELF.

YOU NEED TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR HEALTH.
IT'S NOT IMPORTANT HOW MUCH PEOPLE LIKE YOU.
I USED TO BELIEVE IT WAS; NOW I KNOW IT'S NOT TRUE.
SEEK A VISION OF WHAT YOU LIKE AND CAN DO,
AND DISCOVER WHO YOU REALLY ARE,
AND YOU'LL KNOW YOU HAVE REACHED YOUR STAR.
