I Can’t Make You Walk

I can build for you a road
Lay the tar and break the stone
Cut the turf up golden brown
Until the road has been laid down
But I can’t make you walk
I can’t make you walk

I can make for you a path
Through the woods to greener grass
Across the moorland and the down
That takes you on to higher ground

But I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
No I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
That’s up to you

I’ll build a stair for you to climb
Close to heavens highest heights
Way above the darkest clouds
And the storms of life itself
But I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
No I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk

And I could lead you on your way
And keep your demons hard at bay
And whisper gently in your ear
Words that chase away your fears
And I could help you dream of things
That make you want to live again
And I can even take your habd
And give you strength to make you stand
But I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
No I can’t make you
I can’t make you walk
