  • Lyrics: When I don’t know – horizon’s far beyond me?And I begin to wonder if it’s really worth my while?I take a small step in the direction of the sun?It’s how to start a journey of a meter or a thousand miles??If I take a small step, small step, small step, I will get there, yes I will??We’re all thirsty for what we have not got?And my pot’s far from overflowing?Selfish sun has fried up what was never mine – that’s fine?No matter it’s a cup or a swimming pool, after long rains it will be full if I take it in ??Small steps…??If you want to reach the kingdom, you got to start on your knees?If you want 24 karat gold, you got to pound, pound, pound, pound out every impurity?There ain’t no easy way??So when I wake up in the bottom of a well?And I’m so dizzy from the fall and the path up looks like hell?I look around – I don’t got to be profound??To see there’s only one way to get out and that is up??And I take it in small steps…??Don’t think that an inch doesn’t matter – nothing we do is lost?There’s only two ways to go on the ladder?So please, please, please, please do the right thing it is worth the cost??When I don’t know – horizon’s far beyond me?And I begin to wonder if it’s really worth my while?I take a small step in the direction of the sun?It’s how to start a journey of a meter or a thousand miles??If I take a small step, small step, small step, I will get there, yes I will?
