There’s this little urge inside
Stupid, yet relentless.
Calling me to leave the roads behind.
And even though I clearly know
That this is kinda insane
Every part of me just can’t bring myself to mind.
Oh, have you ever wondered sometime
How it’d feel to sleep beneath the stars?
Would you ever have thought that
The sky could be just a touch apart?
And you’d feel the wind on your face
Like a veil lifted high,
And you’d see that the mountains
Were just stairs to the sky!
The rivers would whisper in their ever-babbling tongues
And for once, you’ll see that you can understand all their words.
And the seas would rage, their waves dashing to and fro
But even this brings a joy yet so unknown!
Oh, how I wish, I could make the world my home,
See all there is to see, roam all there is to roam!
And I can change like the changing tide,
Leave all my fears aside!
And finally take the leap of faith I’ve dreamt about.
I’ll finally leave all the complications
Find new roads to new destinations
Start a new beginning free of all my little doubts.
Pave a path of my own, leave the past all alone
And find a new beginning starting from now.
