Lyrics



I don't know where I'm going

But I sure know where I've been

Hanging on the promises

In songs of yesterday


And I've made up my mind

I ain't wasting no more time


Here I go again

Here I go again


Though I keep searching for an answer

I never seem to find what I'm looking for

Oh, Lord, I pray

You give me strength to carry on


'Cause I know what it means

To walk along the lonely street of dreams


Here I go again on my own

Goin' down the only road I've ever known

Like a hobo I was born to walk alone


But I've made up my mind

I ain't wasting no more time


Just another heart in need of rescue

Waiting on love's sweet charity

I am gonna hold on

For the rest of my days


'Cause I know what it means

To walk along the lonely street of dreams


Here I go again on my own

Goin' down the only road I've ever known

Like a hobo I was born to walk alone

And I've made up my mind

I ain't wasting no more time


But here I go again

Here I go again

Here I go again

Here I go


And I've made up my mind

I ain't wasting no more time


Here I go again on my own

Goin' down the only road I've ever known

Like a hobo I was born to walk alone

'Cause I know what it means

To walk along the lonely street of dreams


Here I go again on my own

Goin' down the only road I've ever known

Like a hobo I was born to walk alone

I have made up my mind

I ain't wasting no more time


But here I go again

Here I go again

Here I go again

Here I go

Here I go again
