lyrics

I was lost in my surroundings, I was lost but not afraid
I had a map, I had a compass, and a heart that would not stray
From the path laid out before me, though my ending was unknown
I packed all that I had and hit the road

And I found the nearest city, and a sidewalk which I claimed
I had to start out somewhere, so I made that street my stage
And to the people passing by me, I played all night and day
But those people had no time and they kept going on their way

And I sang
La di da, la di da da da
I left all that I had just to stand out here and play
La di da, la di da da da
Just hoping in the long run, somebody would stay and stay
And listen to this life I made

Well I wasn't the only one out playing tunes for spare change
I'd often go enjoy the others busking just the same
A few of us got together and found some harmony
We wrote a couple hits and the rest is history

And we sang
La di da, la di da da da
We left all that we had just to stand out here and play
La di da, la di da da da
Just hoping in the long everybody would stop and stay
and listen to this life we've made


La di da, la di da da da
I left all that I had just to stand out here and play
La di da, la di da da da
But looking back I wouldn't have it any other way
Cuz I'm proud of this life I've made
