When I was in college my class went on a trip
To a place down the road
Where the county kept delinquent kids
And old man with a badge said to the class
In here we have all kinds of trash
I could not believe what I'd just heard
At first I wasn't gonna say a word

It's not where you've been, it's where you're going
It's not who you were back then, It's who you are at this moment
Kinda like lookin' at an old photograph
Remembering way back when
It's not where you've been, it's where you're going

I said excuse me sir I know you don't remember me
But try to imagine how I looked when I just turned fifteen
Defiant, scared and confused
Dirty clothes and tattoos with nothing really left to lose
You see that last door on the right
Well sir that door used to be mine


We all have a story we can tell
Somes been lost, some hurt, some of us have been through hell
Well the past is a ghost, a door that's been closed
The start of a winding road
And I know without a doubt
That doesn't matter now


It's where you're going
It's where you're going
