Many more miles were behind him
Than he had left to go
Closing in upon that last one
We all must walk alone
It's the one across the end of the line
So we held on and we told stories
Of the good and bad in all
Of the power and the glory
And the lonely days that crawled
And he said, "Heaven holds true love
And a satisfied mind."

He said, "I ain't afraid of dying
'Cause I know there's something worse:
When you have to see your reason for living go first,
And you get left behind.
Some can't think of nothing better
Than to live this life forever.
I never wanted no more than was mine,
And to lay down someday and go home
With a satisfied mind."

He said, "Don't look into the darkness.
If you want to see true black,
Look into a morning's brightness
When love ain't coming back,
And you will find right there a darkness that blinds.
And don't think wealth is ever having
All you want all to yourself;
It is found when you are giving
What you have to someone else
The only difference in the rich and the poor
Is a satisfied mind."

And one light began to fade
As one grew brighter
And he said, "I ain't afraid of dying
'Cause I know there's something worse:
When you have to see your reason for living go first,
And you get left behind.
Some can't think of nothing better
Than to live this life forever.
I never wanted no more than was mine,
And to lay down someday and go home...
Let me lay down someday and go home
With a satisfied mind."
