lyrics

Why are you hurrying around
Why are you worrying around
Why are you currying around suspicions
Of evil missions

Why are you flurrying away
Why are you worrying away
Why are you blurrying away your eyesight
Let me lend you my sight

The beautiful truth my dear
Is you don't have to hear the things they're thinkin
You got your red guitar
And the crowded Irish pub just south on Lincoln
You think you're miles away
But the beautiful truth is you don't know how close you nearly are
'Cause you so clearly are
Following your own way
Following your own way
Following your own way

Now people can mumble all they want
People can grumble all they want
People can tumble all they want into a cold shoulder
It just makes them colder

Now people are humble all they can
But people grumble all they can
And people fumble all they can, but this malfeasance
Has got its reasons

The beautiful truth my dear
Is they all run away from what they're afraid of
You watch em piss around
And it only goes to show you what they're made of
You got no words to say
But the beautiful truth is you don't know how loud I'm hearing you
Nobody steering you
Following your own way
Following your own way
Following your own way

People are gonna talk
People are gonna talk
People are gonna talk
People are gonna think
When is she gonna walk
Prob'ly she's gonna sink

People are gonna gawk
Waiting for you to blink
Watching you like a hawk

Put those assholes in their places
Sing that smirk right off their faces
The road is yours and yours alone
To close and open doors alone
Go find yourself the answer in the night
You are dust and light

The beautiful truth my dear
Is we don't get to see the way we're going
And though we stand up straight
The wind still finds a way to keep on blowing
Your life begins today
And the beautiful truth is you got years in front of you
Lord knows there's only one of you
So follow your own way
Follow your own way
Follow your own way
Follow your own way
Follow your own way
Follow your own way
