Lyrics
I am standing at the cross roads
I anticipate my fate
But I've got no time to dawdle
No, I've got no time to wait
For my fortune is overdue you see
And I'm ready for what's meant to be

For I've carried stones
And crumbled walls
But wishes drown
And stars don't fall

Now I know you've seen this all before
Many times
Many wars
Many doors

Well I face my adversaries
And they look a lot like me
And I'd like to stop and carry
Someone's load but can't they see
There are bridges I have yet to cross
And I cannot risk that kind of loss

For I've carried stones
And crumbled walls
Still wishes drown
And stars don't fall
I know you've heard this all before

But in truth I've only just begun to ask for more

Now I look on the inside for ­you
And I look on the inside for me
And I look on the inside to see
If maybe on the inside I can find my destiny

Shouldn't I be cautious of the burdens I still bear
Oh that I could make them disappear into thin air

For I'm here to forge the crossroads
But my feet still hesitate
And I turn to see their faces as the line behind me waits
But I cannot leave them all behind
So I reach out to hand that's kind
Who's carried stones & crumbled walls
Whose wishes drowned & stars don't fall
Friend I know you've seen it all before
But in truth I've only just begun to ask for more

Now I look on the inside for you

And I look on the inside for me
And I look on the inside to see
If maybe on the inside I can find my destiny

Yeah I look on the inside for you
And I look on the inside for me
And I look on the inside to see
If maybe on the inside I can find my destiny

And I know you've seen it all before
many times
many ways
many doors
