My life, is extraordinary bare
I fought the fear and chased the pain
My life, doesn't need to be explained
I chose to walk the line as one

Sometimes, as I live upon my island
Cut off from emotion and its pain
That's when, I am tempted by the waters
Waters that can take me faraway

So I just keep on walking down this open road
Hoping someone, somewhere needs me
So I just keep on walking down this open road
Talking to the man who knows me
Yes he knows me, the man is me

My life, was once full of people's faces
Bought to me by love, which isn't strange
My life, had the goodness of blue waters
A day's a day for all I used to say

Sometimes, I can sit and cry my heart out
Drowning in my autocratic ways
That's when, I am tempted by the waters
Waters that can take me far away

So I just keep on walking down this open road
Hoping someone, somewhere needs me
So I just keep on walking down this open road
Talking to the man who knows me
Yes he knows me, the man is me

My life, is now full of people's faces
Within the light of change I pulled away
My life, shows that no man is an island
I've exchanged the piece of life, I couldn't wait

Now you won't see me walking down that open road
I've found someone now who needs me
No, you won't see me walking down that open road
I've found at last the man who knows me
Yes, he knows me and the man is me
And the man is me, the man is me
