Press On

We hit some nice, sunny weather, and new desert ground
You’ve got a sports car driver, talkin’ you south
You got hands in your pocket and nothing they’d decline to take
There ain’t no doubt about it, looks like another slight mistake

It’s the same, mad story winding its way around
But once you lay it all out, you’ll want to get you back… on track
Press on, we press on, press on

– Oh yeah, you know, we’re good, we’re ready to roll…

Now there’s a fresh, hot fortune, a leaders' quiver out in front
They’ve got weapons, team lines and riches
And a temple of royal clerks and thugs
No course, no wind or sail, no pace that could make it up
Just lonesome miles still to run, faint reason to carry on

While outside the perfume nightshade’s amber glow
Old folk tales coil round back in place
As the skies have never been clearer, you know –
Press on, we press on…

Comes a time to rise, like a shot through the wind
Nothing to hold in the shifting sand
In the silence you hear a whisper “I love you”
Well it’s all right now, you’re coming home again - Listen…

Shake the spell from your feet, love –- slow down…
Let dry your dripping hands — start anew
Angels and glory songs light up across the land
Strangers wonder if there’s more to this
Looking for proof -- or just maybe some luck

Press on, we press on…

-- They say “We never… dreamed… it ever… could be so good…”

“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
Winston Churchill

“When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself.”
Isak Dinesen

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge
