When writing this song I imagined my feelings as a landscape...quite a sombre one for this song


I’m looking for a ride to take me out of town
I’m looking for a place to lay my head down
This city never sleeps the lights don’t go out
There’s beggars on their knees all reaching out
Tugging at my sleeves, oh get away from me

I’m getting in that car, I’m jumping on that train
Oh driver take me so very far away

No matter how far I travel, this road it never seems to end
And when I think I’m getting closer, it brings me back again

I’m looking for a table, I’m looking for a chair
I’m looking for a shoe, I’m looking for a stair
But the buildings get taller, with every step I make
And to reach the top gets further away...

The dogs are all wild , looking for scraps to eat
There’s madness in their eyes, danger on the street..

Some people they don’t know where it is, they don’t even know it’s name,
But I’ve known it all my life and I’m walking it again

Longing, breaks my heart every time
Longing, I just want to lay right down and die
Reaching, in my dreams I’m loosing you
Longing I’m tired of walking in these shoes
