Verse 1 Lyrics

There's a man in a world of pain 
Can you hear it in the air 
And the words he breathes?
Just a man nothing more, nothing less
But nonetheless lived his life with every drop he bleeds

But let me take you on a journey 
Times of torment, times of pain
Where the history it rolls the clocks they never change.
He's lived his life the best he knows
Which always goes to show
You and I were not one and the same  (No way!)

Verse 2 Lyrics

Marching through this world 
As the embers float around his weary head 
Something's got to give cause every man has got to live 
So wipe your head before you drop and give

Let me take you on a journey 
Times of torment, times of pain
Where the history it rolls 
The clocks they never change
He's lived his life the best he knows
Which always goes to show
You and I were not one and the same (No way!)

Tura' Lu Lyrics


There's a man in a world of pain 
Can you hear it in the air 
And the words he breathes?
Just a man nothing more, nothing less
But nonetheless lived his life with every drop he bleeds

Let me take you on a journey 
Times of torment, times of pain
Where the history it rolls 
The clocks they never change
He's lived his life the best he knows
Which always goes to show
You and I were not one and the same (No way!)

Tura' lu, Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra lu ra lu.
Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra li
Tura' li, Tura' li, Tura' li la li la li
Tura' li, Tura' li li li

Marching through this world 
As the embers float around his weary head 
Something's got to give cause every man has got to live 
So wipe your head before you drop and give

Let me take you on a journey 
Times of torment, times of pain
Where the history it rolls 
The clocks they never change
He's lived his life the best he knows
Which always goes to show
You and I were not one and the same (No way!)

Tura' lu, Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra lu ra lu.
Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra li
Tura' li, Tura' li, Tura' li la li la li
Tura' li, Tura' li li li

Carry on your way
Carry on your way
Carry on your way
Carry on your way

There's a man in a world of pain 
Can you hear it in the air 
And the words he sings?
He's just a man nothing more, nothing less 
But nonetheless lives this life with every drop he bleeds

Tura' lu, Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra lu ra lu.
Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra li
Tura' li, Tura' li, Tura' li la li la li
Tura' li, Tura' li li li

Tura' lu, Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra lu ra lu.
Tura' lu, Tura' lu ra li
Tura' li, Tura' li, Tura' li la li la li
Tura' li, Tura' li li li
