lyrics

where do i go when i need to be
far away from the people, from the crowded streets
where do i go to feel lonely
to hear the howl of the wild coyote

i'm trapped here in the noise, the rust, the concrete
staring hopelessly at screens
wish i was someplace where i could breathe a
deep breath and feel the crisp winter air
fill my lungs, fill my blood and take me there

where do i go to see the stars
to bathe in the moonlight, hear the wind groan in the dark
where do i go to be alone
to hear the ricer whispering secrets only i will ever know

i'm trapped here in the bright lights the sterility
in a prison that i've made, if i could only find the key
to get out of here, to finally declare
that that is where i belong, take me there

i'll go wherever my feet carry me
through the forest, through the cave, to the stream
i'll follow the stream until it meets the sea
and i'll let the bubbling currents swallow me
i'll go wherever my feet carry me
down the road, through the prairies, to the mountains
and i'll climb that mountain till i reach it's peak
and i'll look upon the land in it's entirety
and i'll dangle my feet off the edge, fearlessly

where do i go to feel small
to be humble, to be an animal
where do i go to feel the thrill
of the magic, of the mystery, of the crying whippoorwill

i'm trapped here in the awful clutch of memories
of a day when i felt tangible, a day when i felt free
i'll strum these chords and let this be a eulogy
to open roads and the horizon, take me there
to open roads and the horizon, take me there
'cause that is where i belong, take me there
