The track up ahead makes me quiver and shake,
But nothing quite feels like these steps that I take
To confront this and further this mess that I’ll make -
Think I’ll take a hike down south.

As the rainclouds roll in
And I think about home,
How you are doing
And if you’re alone,
But there’s nothing I can do
When I’m home or away,
Think I might stay here
For another ten days.

I’ll walk a hundred miles
Through wasps and butterflies
Just to clear my mind of you,
But as the white moon sits up high
I stare at the sky
Thinking if you are thinking too.

Fire warms me
And every inch of my bones;
The only comfort out here
While being alone –
I’m empty all inside
Like the skies at night,
But I feel a change comin’
‘Coz baby I’ll come a runnin’
To you and I’ll never leave your side.

I’m in another world,
Far across the open sea,
Sometimes I stop and think
“Is she thinking of me?”
But I’m in another state now
And I’ve changed my tune,
So when I come back home dear,
I hope that I make it clear
That I just wanna be close to you.
