All Will Be Well

Album: Live at World Cafe (2005)
  • The new day dawns,
    And I am practicing my purpose once again.
    It is fresh and it is fruitful if I win,
    But if I lose,
    Ooh,
    I don't know.

    I'll be tired,
    but I will turn and I will go.
    Only guessing 'til I get there,
    Then I'll know.
    Oh,
    I will know.

    And all the children walking home past the factories
    Can see the light
    That's shining in my window
    As I write this song to you.
    And all the cars
    Running fast along the interstate
    Can feel the love that radiates
    Illuminating what I know is true.

    All will be well,
    Even after all the promises
    You've broken to yourself.
    All will be well,
    You can ask me how
    But only time will tell.

    The winter's cold,
    But the snow still lightly settles
    On the trees.
    And a mess is still a moment
    I can seize until I know.
    That all will be well,
    Even though sometimes
    This is hard to tell,
    And the fine is
    Just as frustrating as hell,
    All will be well.

    And all the children walking home past the factories
    Can see the light
    That's shining in my window
    As I write this song to you.
    And all the cars
    Running fast along the interstate
    Can feel the love that radiates
    Illuminating what I know is true.

    All will be well,
    Even after all the promises
    You've broken to yourself.
    All will be well,
    You can ask me how
    But only time will tell.

    You've got to
    Keep it up,
    and don't give up,
    And chase you're dreams,
    and you will find,
    All in time.

    And all the children walking home past the factories
    Can see the light
    That's shining in my window
    As I write this song to you.
    And all the cars
    Running fast along the interstate
    Can feel the love that radiates
    Illuminating what I know is true.

    All will be well,
    Even after all the promises
    You've broken to yourself.
    All will be well,
    You can ask me how
    But only time will tell.

    All will be well,
    Even after all the promises
    You've broken to yourself.
    All will be well,
    You can ask me how
    But only time will tell.
    You can ask me how
    But only time will tell.
