Growin' up you don't see the writing on the wall
Passin' by, movin' straight ahead you'd knew it all
But one day sometime when you feel the pain
You'll find you're all alone, everything has changed.
Play the game, you know you can't quit until it's won
Soldier on, only you can do what must be done
You know in some ways you're a lot like me
You're just a prisoner, and you're tryin to break free
I can see the new horizon underneath the blazing sky
I'll be where the eagles flyin higher and higher
Gonna be a man in motion, all I need's a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin, St. Elmo's fire.
Burnin up, don't know just how far that I can go
Soon be home, only just a few miles down the road.
I can make it, I know I can
You broke the boy in me, but you won't break the man.
Just once in his life a man has his time, and my time is Now, I'm coming
I can hear the music playin, I can see the banners fly
Feels like you're back again and hope riding high
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need's a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin St. Elmo's fire
I can climb the highest mountain, cross the wildest sea
I can feel St. Elmo's fire burnin in me
Burnin, I can feel it burnin in me.
