or
John Mellencamp

Sweet belly of the moment
You've realized you've changed
And everything you are after
Well, has gone down the drain

You're nothing more than just a drifter
As you walk down your road
Not exactly the picture
You thought you'd be sending home

All these places mean nothing
It?s the people we count on
Here without a purpose
Gone without a song

Yesterday seemed so sudden
Today seems to have no end
So you button up the buttons
Say goodbye to what has been

Those black and white pictures
That file through your veins
That's the trouble with the future
It always stays the same

And your pride?s been shaken
And those people you count on
Here without a purpose
And gone without a song, without a song

In the uncertainty of a new day
Opportunity may howl
You hear the voice in a new way
In the past you didn't know how

You're old enough to know the difference
Between an enemy and a friend
With the eyes of knowledge upon you
You're able to stand up again

Life is always in motion
And there's new people to count on
Here you may find a purpose
And sing a brand new song

Life is always in motion
New people to count on
Here we find a purpose
To sing a brand new song
Brand new song, sing a brand new song
