Shake of the Hand: Elton Plett

When you go to the wishing well
For a dream the world you’d sell
You bring your money and you give it all
But on deaf ears it falls

Sitting all alone
Waiting by the telephone
But no one is going to call
You’re just a prisoner behind four walls

I am a one-woman man
But you’ll understand
When will you ever learn
Love is more
Than the shake of a hand

There’s something wrong I’m told
With the condition of your soul
Your best years have come and gone
But you still cannot move on

The path you walk is yours alone
You’ve gotta turn that house into a home
It’s just your choices in life you see
That will shape your destiny
