Fortitude

by Tom Swift

I don’t know where I’m going
But I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises
And songs of yesterday

And I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time

Here I go again
Here I go again

Though I keep searching for an answer,
I never seem to find what I’m looking for
Oh, Lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on

‘Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

-Whitesnake, “Here I Go Again,” Whitesnake (1987)
