Leland's Way

Copyright © 2003 Kelli Caldwell

ROUGH A CAPPELLA VERSION!


Texte alternatif



On the escalator
He moves as fast as anyone
And no one calls him “Grandpa” on the way
Ooh—

 

So he rides to the top
Then he rides to the bottom
And he breathes a little deeper on the way
Watching the screen as it replays all his triumphs
How he tried to hold the tears back
On the day he met his son


Chorus:
Run—through your life
Hold your head up, Mr. Leland
I don’t know you from Adam
But I know what you deserve

Step aside, for Mr. Leland
Give him room to make his way
Everyday feels like a thousand others
Since “the Mother” died–his lover

 

On the escalator
He’s as tall as anyone
And no one brushes past him on their way
Ooh—

So he rides to the top
Then he rides to the bottom
And he tips his hat to strangers as he did in yesterday
Watching the green
As they fight to write their stories
He could give them half the answers
If they’d only listen up

 

Chorus:
Run—through your life
Hold your head up, Mr. Leland
I don’t know you from Adam
But I know what you deserve

Listen up, to Mr. Leland
He’s got stories on his mind
Fame and fortune he may not have gained
But he matters, just the same

Bridge:
When you retired, you didn’t die
You entered a different phase of your life
They offer “answers”
A quick end
Don’t listen, Mr. Leland

 

Chorus:
Run—through your life
Hold your head up, Mr. Leland
I don’t know you from Adam
But I know what you deserve

Listen up, to Mr. Leland
He’s got stories on his mind
Fame and fortune he may not have gained
But he matters, just the same
