Pass It On


I don't seem to be able to move forward
Until I catch up with my past
Will there be enough time moon goddess?
Ah, but the wheel never turns too fast
Sometimes I crave affection
Yet, then I feel smothered with love
Look for the answer in my reflection
In the moon, and the stars above
I've searched for home for all eternity
Oh goddess, is there not such a place?
Ah, but rekindle that love with your own spirit
And there you will find your own space
Once you've learned these things
That you've always known
You need not search for the answer
You must pass it on
The wheel never turns too fast
Tho' you may help it along
Give back to whence you gathered
Your life is but a song
Pass it on, pass it on
