Heaven can be hell

if you got no head for heights.

Another slave of gravity

is falling through the night.

I guess I got the girl

but I'm sentenced to the world.

Can U make it be alright?

 

O, the ardor she'd invite,

the rebellion she'd incite

in the garden of her sweet delight.

I have to take the fall

but I get to make a call.

Can U make it be alright?

 

Can U make it? Can U make it?

Can U make it? Can U make it?

Can U make it be alright?

I guess I got to go.

I'm going with the flow.

Can U make it be alright?

 

So now I've ended down

at the other end of town.

Got a heart that only beats at night.

Can you return a heart of darkness

to the architect of light?

Can U make it be alright?

 

Can U make it? Can U make it?

Can U make it? Can U make it?

Can U make it be alright?

Have mercy on the traveler

who's on the road tonight.

Can U make it be alright?

 

There's a shadow in the shadows

up around the bend.

It ain't my childhood sweetheart

or my huckleberry friend.

Will I make it to the light?

I don't got no second sight.

Can U make it be alright?

 

I got nothing on my mind

intelligence designed,

no-one in my dreams tonight.

No-one I desire.

Nothing I require.

Can U make it be alright?

 

Can U make it? Can U make it?

Can U make it? Can U make it?

Can U make it be alright?

Let not this errant pilgrim

be hidden from thy sight

nor angels of iniquity

stand against thy might.

Have mercy on the traveler

who's on the road tonight.

Can U make it be alright?

Can U make it be alright?
