Almost There

Lyrics

Motivated by ambition and unrelenting drive
Doing everything I can to keep my drive alive
But there's been no validation and I only feel deprived
I'm almost there yet never quite

I've seen it in the distance, I've seen the end in sight
Stays within my vision when I go to bed at night
But when I get up in the morning it is gone and that's my plight
I'm almost there yet never quite

Like the skier in the slalom who missed the final gate
being left to think if life is truly fair
Like the swimmer in the last lap who touched the wall too late
I'm almost there yet never quite
Almost there and yet not quite …………ever there

To get to where you want to is a never-ending race
You put in all this effort just to barely keep the pace
and every time I see a doorway it gets slammed in my face
I'm almost there yet never quite

For all the steps I've taken there's a million more to go
For all the progress that I've made it's going real slow
For I depend on some gatekeeper who's always saying no
I'm almost there yet never quite

Like the skier in the slalom who missed the final gate
being left to think if life is truly fair
Like the swimmer in the last lap who touched the wall too late
I'm almost there yet never quite
Almost there and yet not quite …………ever there……………ever there

I made a lot of strides but it never seems to be
enough to really turn the tide, a harsh reality
and if that becomes my epitaph what a real tragedy
to be almost there, yet never quite

Like the skier in the slalom who missed the final gate
being left to think if life is truly fair
Like the swimmer in the last lap who touched the wall too late
I'm almost there yet never quite
Almost there yet never quite
Almost there yet never quite
Almost there and yet not quite…… ever there, ever there, ever there
