"Be What You Must" lyrics - YUSUF ISLAM

"Be What You Must"

I have journeyed endless miles
Seen many harbours,
Where I took rest awhile
On this boat called 'near & far',
To be what you must,
You must give up what you are

Only on a wind of hope my heart sailed
Braving mystic oceans to arrive
Those who do not leave
And choose to stay:
Barely survive

Be you dust; or be you star
To be what you must
Just reach out for what you are
And though you've traveled many roads
There's but one way, and that's the one you chose
