lyrics

There’s a cool Midwestern breeze blowing through this town. And I’ve watched it grow for twenty-some odd years now. It’s coming to carry me, to finally set my mind free, but honestly you don’t have to come along this time. You see, for too long now I haven’t held my end. I’ve been sitting around this room waiting for something to begin. It’s burning up inside. I’m ready to let it out alive before it dies. Well I’ll be searching for the signs of everything I left behind. But I’ll keep myself on fire just to keep it all in sight. Because that’s just who I am, I found common ground where I learned to stand. And I’m headed for the door; so if you’re hopeful, take my hand. This train is moving on. I said it once before, but that was before the line was drawn. I stumbled blindly to my knees, I crossed it before I could see but you were my spine. You helped me speak. Now there’s a building burning down and there’s a war they’re fighting underground. And you’re stuck somewhere between it trying not to make a sound. This could be our last chance to see it and then I’m giving up on ghosts. The things that keep you up are not the things that haunt you the most. Well then we woke up on the floor of an apartment in the city, where the city that never sleeps goes to sleep at night. You were next to me. I was on my own. That’s the first time I ever felt at home. And that Sunday morning song was on. And we waited until the rain moved on. And then we moved on... and I learned that’s just how it goes. It’s a calling summer day. It’s a thousand miles of highway and at the end I’m certain you’ll find that I’ve been led astray. But don’t you worry baby, no I’ll be fine. I’m standing on my own this time. And don’t you think for one second I’d forget this place I swore I’d never leave or the people that I see. It will always be a part of me.
