APED: "still walking"

Back to song lyrics. This has a kind of Warren Zevon sound in my head, probably because I'm reading his biography.

Put one foot down, then plant the next.
Shift your weight. Just don't expect
the world to change, or love and light,
but you're still walking. That's all right.

Sometimes you trip. Sometimes you fall.
Sometimes you're down. Sometimes you crawl.
Sometimes you look up, see a friend.
Sometimes you just get up again.

It ain't been the easiest road,
it don't matter which way you go,
the road's rough on the feet, and you just can't take flight,
yeah, you're still walking,
yeah, you're still walking,
yeah, you're still walking,
and yeah, that's all right.

So pick up one foot. Put it down.
Take your weight, shift it around.
It don't seem like much, and it's not.
But it's still the best thing you've got.

Sometimes all the words just seem trite.
Sometimes you're too tired to fight.
Sometimes you're still walking, just barely upright.
Sometimes you're still walking all night.

Come on back to the world when you're through.
I'm here, and I'm waiting on you.
I've got the light on, and I'll be here all night,
yeah, you're still walking,
yeah, you're still walking,
yeah, you're still walking,
and yeah, that's all right.

Still walking (still walking)
still walking (still walking)
yeah, we're all still walking,
and yeah, that's all right.
