This song is about an individual who lives his/her life, visiting many places and learning many things along the way. Then one day, when this person is is older and reflective about his/her experiences, the individual realizes that they are a very different person than when their journey began.
I tried to see what can't be seen.
I tried to do what can't be done.
I tried to hear what can't be heard.
I tried to live with what I'd become.
I tried to find what can't be found.
I tried to learn what can't be learned.
I tried to take what can't be taken.
I tried to reach out for what I yearn.
I saw what no one else could see.
I did what no one else could do.
I heard what no one else could hear.
I pulled and pulled and pulled through.
I found what no one else could find.
I learned what no one else could learn.
I took what no one else could take.
I get what I have so surely earned.
I tried to fight what can't be fought.
I tried to win what can't be won.
I tried to pay what can't be paid.
I lost my way on the run.
I felt what no one else could feel.
I gave what no one else could give.
I sit here looking at my story.
And admiring the life I lived.
