Keep on Keepin’ On

I don’t want to wait anymore,
I’m tired of looking for answers.
Take me some place,
where there’s music and there’s laughter.
I don’t know if I’m scared of dying,
but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow.
Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I’ve got to go.
There’s no starting over,
no new beginnings, time races on,
and you’ve just gotta keep on keeping on.

Gotta keep on going,
looking straight out on the road.
Can’t worry ’bout what’s behind you
or what’s coming for you further up the road.
I try not to hold on to what is gone,
I try to do right, what is wrong?
I try to keep on keeping on,
yeah I just keep on keeping on.

I hear a voice calling,
calling out for me.
These shackles I’ve made
in an attempt to be free.
Be it for reason, be it for love,
I won’t take the easy road …
