CROSSROADS

You can have power or you can have joy
But you cannot have both
You're at the crossroads
Which way will you go?

Our leaders have been wielding power for many a year
Our leaders have been wielding power for many a year
Did they find fulfillment or are they still filled with fear?

Why don't our leaders use power for positive change?
Why don't our leaders use power for positive change?
They just do the same old same old, slightly rearranged

You can have power or you can have joy
But you cannot have both
You're at the crossroads
Which way will you go?

Power brings access to privilege and access to wealth
Power brings access to privilege and access to wealth
Power brings fame and ways to make a name for yourself

Joy comes along when relaxing and letting it be
Joy comes along when relaxing and letting it be
When being true to yourself, joy comes naturally

You can have power or you can have joy
But you cannot have both
You're at the crossroads
Which way will you go?

There is a power we have, but we don't always use
There is a power we have, but we don't always use
It's a beautiful power, it's the power to choose.

Unless we are lost, there's a crossroads every day
Unless we are lost, there's a crossroads every day
If you don't want the blues, don't snooze, choose joy today

You can have power or you can have joy
But you cannot have both
You're at the crossroads
Which way will you go?

Great stuff!

I have to admit though, having just written a lyric about the midlands, I saw the title and wondered if it was going to be about Noele Gordon...

(There are probably only a handful of people in the whole of W/L land who get that reference - but I suspect you are one of them)
