Ask me where I'm going
I'll tell you where I've been.
Ask me who I am
And I'll say that I'm your friend.
Ask me what I'm doing
I'll tell you I don't know.
Just trying to live through life
And now it's time to go.
Back when I was just a kid
I used to think the world was big,
But really it ain't that big at all.
(Not at all)
Foreign lands in far away
Until I learned the truth one day,
In reality the world's quite small.
(World so small)
I wanted to sail across the sea
To find another place to be
Where I could live so happily,
Well that would be the life for me.
I wanted to fly the sky so vast,
In a Jet-plane traveling fast,
Looking out the looking glass,
Watching the clouds go past.
I've been high and I've been low,
Seems like everywhere I go
Is a place I could call home.
(Home sweet home)
Yesterday is in my shadow
And today is a new battle,
Tomorrow's the great unknown.
Got my tickets, bags are packed.
Forcing my head no turning back.
The smoke is white, the coal is black,
The engine's pushing off this track.
Ship is setting sail again.
It's just me against the wind.
Where loneliness is my old friend.
Who comes to visit now and then.
(A time will come for all of us
To test that element of trust,
To climb aboard that final bus
That turns our ashes into dust.)
