A Long Way

Verse
I met a man the other day, said he made his first million
At age twenty-two, guess that’s a good feeling
Well that’s not my story, but I’m out here living
And I’m 7441 Parnell driven
From a military hospital to Norfolk, Virginia
Some parts get blurring, but from what I can remember
There’s always been a drive that could not surrender
I mean at age nine I tracked my first Fender
And at ten years old I found that little screen
Something said hey Sean, that’s your thing
So I dreamed the big dream hoping one day I
Could be fly like the big boys and roam the sky
Took a couple wrongs turns around 17
Started hanging with the crabs trying to kill that dream
But I shook ‘em all off like a dog with fleas
There was so much hope and I had to believe
And I found in the end, they can’t shake mine
My drive? Never lost it, but something I can’t find
Is quite enough time, but I won’t fake mine
Cause this canvas called life? I gotta paint mine
Memphis to Cali, Raleigh to DC
Call center worker to coaching the VPs
Knucklehead kid to speaking up at Harvard
I gotta laugh now cause they don’t know how it started
Cecil’s blue trailer, ditching school in the alley
Old dungarees, mopping floors in the galley
I’m still out dreaming, but hey I gotta say
I’m proud of where I’m at, your boy came a long way
I’m still out dreaming, but hey I gotta say
I’m proud of where I’m at, your boy came a long way
I’m still out dreaming, but hey I gotta say
I’m proud of where I’m at, your boy came a long way

Outro
We must dream the impossible dream
We must fight the impossible fight
We must push to out very limits
To overcome the coldest nights
It is through this process that we see where life can take us
Yes we’ve all come a long way, and in all of us there is greatness
