I have stood in high mountains and felt myself at home
I have walked in great cities and knew I was alone
I have lived my life in landscapes other men have owned
suffered sun and wind and weather right down to the bone

just one life, so many doors
thatís how we get through the brick wall
just one life, so many doors
we have nothing, we have it all

I have lived on these islands and never saw the sea
I have sung in churches and did not believe
I have sung in fear and anger, I thought my voice would freeze
but women reached my soul at last and brought me to my knees

ďif nothing is given, nothing is required
sent early to bed the boy never tired
alone in the dark he learned not to cry
and then in his dreams he could fall, he could flyĒ

just one life, so many doors
thatís how we get through the brick wall
just one life, so many doors
we have nothing, we have it all
