  • I leave the home of a lifetime
    Like any son
    I have hope and good intentions
    And wandering into the daybreak
    I learn as I go
    To fall laughing into the water
    Sticks and the stones are your broken promises
    We wait too long to go from rags to riches
    I am in love, I am in love with a feeling
    A wild wild sky, a wild wild sky
    Fences and tumble down bridges surround and divide
    I wear a coat of many colours, of many colours
    The sticks and the stones, our broken promises
    I wait no longer to go from rags to riches
    People are leaving the squalor
    They're leaving the houses and fires
    And starting out
    We find the waiting country
    Sticks and the stones are your broken promises
    I wait no longer, I go from rags to riches
    From rags to riches
    I go from rags to riches
    Go from rags to riches
    From rags to riches
