[Verse:]
The waves came down but the world never wanted
Hearts press on anyway and until
Where there’s smoke there’s fire, faith has charm
But faith can destroy
By and by all the threads are sown
Dark clouds make their presence known
Stand by the fire and just hope that it doesn’t burn out

[Chorus:]
When the world is not what it seems
On the outside looking in on a dream
Don’t let the barricades of life keep the wild spirit still
When the world around caves in
Lights will shine, let your life begins
Don’t let the barricades of life keep the wild spirit still

[Verse:]
No matter what you set out to find
This competition down the line
The crime of one might be the salt of the earth tonight
Makes no difference what others say and do
The path goes on showing the way for you
The sign says redemption ahead
Move straight on through

[Chorus:]
When the world is not what it seems
On the outside looking in on a dream
Don’t let the barricades of life keep the wild spirit still
When the world around caves in
Lights will shine, let your life begins
Don’t let the barricades of life keep the wild spirit still

Don’t let the barricades of life keep the wild spirit still
