lyrics

You pay to play from day to day
From ports of call their voices fall
But the ship passes over
Ever striving, never to stay
At every stage, at every age
It's hard to turn the page

At every pass, retry your class
For every stroke, you're rich but broke
All the traps and the trappings
Ever endless to every end
For every turn, for every burn
It cuts, it breaks, it stays
You keep with care

That ember rare
You shield it close

Against the foes
More than a pledge
A promise kept
The book is writ
It's you who lives it
You feel the pain
Don't take the blame
The fear is free
Strength costs a fee
And forces waned
Can be regained
You shine a path
And that's how I knew that

You'd take it in stride
I always knew that you'd take it in stride
No matter the cards you're dealt
The blows you're dealt
Never mind, you would take them in your stride
You'd take it in stride
I knew that you'd take it in stride
Shot through with the rays of your hope
All our days
For all places and times
You would take it
You would take it
You would take it
You would take it all
In stride
In stride
In stride
