All we can work on is what we’re given
To make the best of this life we’re livin’
But there comes a time for every man
To give to whoever he thinks he can but what have I got to give?
What do I know about this world where we live?
All we can work from is where we are
To make the best of the journey no matter how far
But there comes a time to look inside
I’ll give my all, you won’t be denied
What could stop me from giving my all?
I know I’ll catch you should you ever fall
I’ve got two arms to hold you
I’ve got two eyes to help you find your way
I’ve got two feet to walk and take you to a much better day
I’ve got two hands to work to help you get the best start
But when I want to love you I only need one heart
All we can do is really never enough
Do we want those we leave behind to live a life so tough?
There comes a time when you truly realise
How much magic is in the innocence of children’s eyes
What have I really got to give?
What have I learned about this world where we live?
All our starting points are different in the human race
But we’re all on the same journey trying to find a better place
My job is to make sure you get thru alright
Show you that in the darkness there’ll be some light
Call me when you need me, no matter how rough the ride
I’m always there for you; I’ll be right by your side

A song for Reece Cameron
This song was written around the same time (and with the same sound) as ‘My Reason’
and ‘Always Tomorrow’. I took these lyrics to work, drew a music stave on a bit
of paper and whilst working (or looking like I was working) tried coming up with
melodies and putting the dots down. This song should have been on ‘Bail’ where it’s
musical cousins ended up but for whatever reason, it ended up as a bonus track on
the end of SIANM. It would have been a B-
