mystery solved, now it’s a new kind of deal
a new set of problems, some fancied, some real
your trusty old friends, with no hand to lend you today
if you knew all along, would it have turned out this way?

progress is progress, it’s just not over yet
with the promise of promise I’m willing to bet
through the clouds, through the fog,
the backlog of things left to say

if you knew all along
would you do it this way?

no something for nothing, not anymore
a spaceship has landed on the forest floor
that you’re willing to keep traveling on with me
if we knew all along
now where would we be?

so often impatient want to get it all done
have it once and for always - have it all for once

serenity flies on uncertain terms
what will you do now with all what you’ve learned?
take another blank page and wish them a happier day

if you knew all along …(what would they say?)
if you knew all along …(what would you do?)
if you knew all along …(would you do it this way?)
if you knew all along …(with nothing to prove)
if you knew all along …(where would we be?)
if you knew all along …(happy, joyous and free)
