Two baby boys, born on an island far to the north
A life determined by skin, that was as brown as the earth
Stolen away, from a mothers who's cries
Can be heard by a nation to this day
All the lies, places and faces were all lost in time
All those lies, and the river of tears those mothers had cried
Remembering the past, dreaming of the future
But living for today, living for
The Journey of a thousand miles begins with
Just one step, the Journey of a thousand miles
Begins with just one step
The first was raised on a farm, the work was hard and the times were tough
But grew there a man, six foot tall and a strong pair of hands
And tailor made shoes, with a four hour trip to the city each june
For a size fourteen is the sound, of a man who's feet are firmly set on the ground
So a letter came one day, that the mother they never knew
Had fallen I'll and passed away
But with that letter came the news,
That many miles to the west he had a twin brother
So much had been found, and so much had been lost
So he set out on a Thursday, just one huge foot in front of the other
It was a journey of a thousand miles - to find a brother
And after a month of walking, of just one foot in front of the other
He stood there, and they looked at each other
And they knew. It was like looking into a mirror
And they embraced, like brothers do
They talked, and they ate
So the next day, they went and bought two pairs
Of those brown boots for the winter
And every year in June they meet on that day
And these days they bring their families
And they get those brown boots together,
For they are a family of their own
They know where they come from,
And they sort of know where they're going
That journey of a thousand miles that began
With just one huge step...
Remembering the past, dreaming of the future
But living for today, living for
The Journey of a thousand miles begins with
Just one step, the Journey of a thousand miles
Begins with just one step
