There's a story to tell of heaven and hell
There're ladders to climb and snakes to decline
With a ball and chain you come back again
But it won't mean a thing if the chain don't swing

You've been up and you've been round
You walked every street of this old town
But they're not going to bring you down
No, not the second time around

Well, there's an apple to bite before you can take flight
And affairs of the heart before you can start
Rules to break and promises to make
Struggle to win, then you can begin

You've been up and you've been round
You walked every street of this old town
But they're not going to bring you down
No, not the second time around

For so long, so high, as you reach for the sky
When you get your wings, don't be surprised if the wings don't fly

So try to walk the walk and to talk the talk
You got a message to send, you'll get there in the end

You've been up and you've been round
You walked every street of this old town
But they're not going to bring you down
No, not the second time around

For so long, so high, as you reach for the sky
When you get your wings, don't be surprised if the wings don't fly

You've been up and you've been round
You walked every street of this old town
But they're not going to bring you down
No, not the second time around
