leather on my shoes lyrics – chris de burgh

i’ve got leather on my shoes
and i’ve got a dream to live
there is nothing left to lose
so i’m going

i’ve got a suitcase here in my hand
and i’ve got a hungry heart
and i’m going to join the millions
there before me on the freedom road

no-one’s coming to my door
and all my friends are gone
and there’s no work here anymore
it’s deserted

and though i know i hate to leave
from this land that i love
there’s a new tomorrow waiting
yes, it’s shining on the freedom road
on the freedom road

oh, sometimes it’s going to be lonely
sometimes it will be sad
but i’ve got to keep on going
until i hold that promised land
in the palm of my hand

nothing ventured nothing gained or won
without a hard fight
we would never reach the sun
without trying

and when we’re a million miles from home
out in the starry night
we will see we’re not alone
in the heavens out on freedom road
out on freedom road

out on freedom road
out on freedom road
