Song Meaning
Verse 1
Every day's a new day
That's what I've been told
Try to hold your head high
The world runs hot and cold
Verse 2
It's hard to follow footprints
in the shifting sand
Another thirsty rider
Behind the caravan
Verse 3
You had no idea
just what was waiting out there
You never thought you'd carry the weight
of the world
On your pretty blond hair
Verse 4
This ain't no Shangri-La
To you, no Shangri-La
This ain't no Shangri-La
Nobody knows no Shangri-La
Verse 5
Hey! There's a whole lotta people
wonderin' who you are
They think you walk without a care in the world
But they've been wrong so far
Verse 6
This ain't no Shangri-La
To you, no Shangri-La
This ain't no Shangri-La
Nobody knows no Shangri-La
Verse 7
No one can decide
What we all must outrun
Who's gonna carry the weight of the world
Until we learn to stop
and do what must be done?
Verse 8
This ain't no Shangri-La
To you, no Shangri-La
This ain't no Shangri-La
Nobody Knows no Shangri-La
