At This Point in My Life

Excerpt from “At This Point in my Life”

by Tracy Chapman 

…..

At this point in my life

Although I’ve mostly walked in the shadows

I’m still searching for the light

Won’t you put your faith in me

We both know that’s what matters

If you give me a chance I’ll try

You see I’ve been climbing stairs 

but mostly stumbling down

I’ve been reaching high 

always losing ground

You see I’ve conquered hills 

but I still have mountains to climb

And right now right now 

I’m doing the best I can

At this point in my life

…..

At this point in my life

I’d like to live as if only love mattered

As if redemption was in sight

As if the search to live honestly

Is all that anyone needs

No matter if you find it

You see when I’ve touched the sky

The earth’s gravity has pulled me down

But now I’ve reconciled that in this world

Birds and angels get the wings to fly

If you can believe in this heart of mine

If you can give it a try

Then I’ll reach inside and find and give you

All the sweetness that I have

At this point in my life

At this point in my life
