THE REAL THING

Rise above it, shine out as the stars,
Yes it’s the real thing, O yeah.
Like flames of fire with a coat of many colors,
It’s the real thing, O yeah

(chorus) Without the right what would be left?
Balancing equals a life long quest.
Some get a piece and think it’s the whole,
Just like a blues singer that’s got no soul.

I see the rising of the Sun in the East,
Yes it’s the real thing, O yeah.
Shadows behind me and the Sun’s standing still,
Yes it’s the real thing, O yeah.

(chorus)

Skip over puddles, children singing in the rain,
Yes it’s the real thing, O yeah—ee-yeah.
My Lord I see your footprints in the sand,
Yes it’s the real thing, O yeah.

(chorus)
