So much pain and no good reason why
You've cried until the tears run dry.
And nothing here can make you understand.
The one thing you held so dear, is slipping from your hands.
And you say
Why why why?
Does it go this way?
And why why why?
When all I can say is somewhere down the road,
They'll be answers to the questions
Somewhere down the road
though we can not see it now
somewhere down the road you will find mighty arms
reaching for you
and they will hold the answers at the end of the road.
Yesterday I thought I'd seen it all
I thought I'd climbed the highest wall
and now I see that learning never ends.
And all I know to do is keep on walking
walking round the bend.
Oh Keep on Walking (spoken)
Oh and they will hold the answers at the end of the road.
Oh Keep on walking...
Walking down the road...
Somewhere down this lonely road, can't see it now...

Behind the Song:
“I wrote this chorus on a chilly night spent in an old gutted-out cabin, under an April
full moon in 1995. The children were finally asleep. A good friend and I were settling
into another conversation about the ‘why’s’ in life. The song just slipped out.” - Amy Grant
