Little boy Luke stops a goal, that's no fluke
This kid knows what he wants to be
Mom, do you think that in some future rink
That superstar goalie is me?
She knows these things are so easily said
She says "we'll see about that, it's time for your bed"
You can't prearrange all these hopes that may change
On a dime... just give yourself time.

It's not easy to run
When you carry a load
Let the questions be done
And follow the road

Suzie's no bore, she just turned 24
And she's trying to get out of her head
I need some cash for my rent, I can stash
I need a new job or I'm dead
And my aspirations of traveling nations
And living my dreams are too crazy it seems
Right now I've a date for which I'm running late
There's no time... I've got ladders to climb.

It's not easy to run
When you carry a load
Let the questions be done
And follow the road

Steve's 43, he says "hey, look at me..
I'm proud of the business I've done.
I'm wealthy in life, I've got me a good wife
And a 10-year-old goal-scoring son
And who needs a break, do you know what I make?
I've built my career, we vacation each year
And so there's a price, I'll admit it'd be nice
To have time... While I'm still in my prime."

Grandma Odet has some spunk in her yet
Though of late even she's slowing down
"You should visit me more, have I become such a chore?
Bring the kids by when you go to town.
And I've seen so much, now I'm so out of touch
With the dreams that I had, I shouldn't make myself sad
I know I can cope just as long as I hope
I've got time... Is that such a crime?"

It's not easy to run
When you carry a load
Let the questions be done
And follow the road
It's not easy to run
When you carry a load
Let the questions be done
And follow the road
Follow the road
Follow the road
