Where You're Going Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I was in college my class went on a trip
To a place down the road where the county kept delinquent kids
An old man with a badge said to the class
"And here we have all kinds of trash"

I could not believe what I just heard
At first I wasn't gonna say a word

It's not where you been, it's where you're going
It's not who you were back then, it's who you are at this moment
Kinda like looking at an old photograph, remembering way back when
It's not where you been, it's where you're going

I said, "Excuse me, sir, I know you won't remember me
But try to imagine how I looked when I'd just turned 15
Defiant, scared and confused, dirty clothes and tattoos
With nothing really left to lose, you see the last door on the right?
Sir, that door used to be mine"

It's not where you been, it's where you're going
It's not who were back then, it's who you are at this moment
Kinda like looking at an old photograph, remembering way back when
It's not where you been, it's where you're going

We all have a story we can tell
Some's been lost, some hurt, some of us have been through hell
Well, the past is a ghost, a door that's been closed
The start of a winding road and I know without a doubt
That doesn't matter now

It's not where you been, it's where you're going
It's not who you were back then, it's who you are at this moment
Kinda like looking at an old photograph, remembering way back when
Oh yeah, it's not where you been, no, it's not where you've been
It's where you're going

It's where you're going, it's where you're going
