why wait? let’s pull up stakes today i’m ready to go anywhere i’m ready to go anywhere why say these are things that hold us back? we’re ready to go anywhere we’re ready to go anywhere step out, wondering where i am i can’t stand still my restless bones won’t let me where to? pull out the map, let’s go! i’m ready to go anywhere i’m ready to go anywhere who knows how long we’ll be around? i’m ready to go anywhere i’m ready to go anywhere

don't think you have to go down that road alone someone is on your side don't wonder how you’ll do what you need to do hope is endless as the sky but it's long and twisted, the path that you're headed there's no way to get through but to go through it if you're fighting a monster, you know how that goes there's no way to get through but to destroy it wind blows cold and leaves rattle, fall on the roof sirens whine, don't see the lights when you do what you need to do you'll see hope as endless as the sky it's long and twisted, the path that you're headed there's no way to get through but to go through it if you're fighting a monster, you know how that goes there's no way to get through but to destroy it

something about nights being so dark can't see my hand in front of my face getting lost on my way back home seeing a little further out in space the way the stars shine out here makes me dread going back to the city i could never live in the middle of nowhere but there has to be somewhere in between something about walking on a dirt road it's a different feel wherever you go faces and voices with slight variations people living lives i will never know something about snow in the desert it's beautiful, seems so out of place when i travel this all kinda runs together it's anywhere and i’m up for the chase the way the stars shine

the highway stretches out further than i can see with a choice of direction and everything waiting for me taking in every sight i can and hoping you are seeing the same things I am there are times i don’t notice the details that surround me other times i find i’m amazed by almost everything like the feel of the road when i’m driving too slow or how friendly people can be when they say “hello” the crunch of leaves and dry grass under my feet or the effortless way you look at me some days i don’t leave my house and i’m perfectly happy some days i can’t stand it, i’ll go crazy if i don’t leave i need you so bad sometimes it hurts but saying things like that just makes it worse

i still miss you pretty often when i forget you’re gone never saw you enough, now that’ll never change things return to normal, but it’s always strange i still miss you in the fall and when i listen to lou we never played that song, now that’ll never change things return to normal, but it’s always strange i still miss you when i’m laughing at something i shouldn’t we never talked enough, now that’ll never change things return to normal, but it’s always strange

waiting for it all to get to the point or wherever it's going will there be anything when the smoke clears when the fires burn out will anyone remember those they marked and left on the road will you find your love when the smoke clears when the fires burn out keep some demons to yourself keep some demons for yourself and let the rest out when you face the enemy and all the stories you've been told will you find your peace when the smoke clears when the fires burn out

haven't seen you, friend, in oh so long wonder how you're doing, if you're still keeping on there was a time we looked out for each other we might not need that anymore but sometimes i still wonder if we still spoke would i still be waiting for a phone call informing me you'd done something crazy there was a time we looked out for each other wonder if i let you down or if we let down each other haven't seen you, friend, and i know it's been some time think about finding you, don't know if i have the right there was a time we looked out for each other we may never be as lonely as when we had each other

to get to where i’m going i’m gonna need a thick pair of boots because i don’t know if it’ll be cold it might rain or even snow to get to where i’m going i guess i’d better read the news because i don’t know what happened today and i know i’ll need something to say to tell you how i feel i’m gonna need some christmas lights wrapped around a hundred trees the lightest rain and the softest breeze to tell you how i feel i’m gonna need a few more songs wrapped around this old guitar and sung kinda poorly to wherever you are to get to where i’m going i may need a map or two i’ll follow the trail wherever it goes till i find myself on the right road to get to where i’m going i may need to get some rest when i fall asleep will i dream and find in my mind some deeper meaning

no big deal that you’re going so far away we’ll see each other real soon i can find ways to keep myself busy and fool myself into thinking i’m not missing you in this small space it’s too obvious you’re nowhere in the room i can find ways to make distracting noises and fool myself into thinking i’m not missing you our home is always moving around it’s what we choose to do we can find ways to settle in a new place but i can’t fool myself i’m still missing you

used to be afraid of seeing ghosts but now i wish i could there are people i'd like to see again and you, yeah you, yeah you are one of them still have the book you said was your favorite the last time we got together still can't bear to open it up but i promise i will, i will i will read it someday never know when you’ll get a bad news phone call never know when your days will end i just hope to leave a good impression and you, yeah you, yeah you you know i love you
12.
let’s hang up a map of every place we want to see then we’ll make a list and visit each one, maybe randomly i’m not restless but i’d love to see more of the world it’s been a long time since we packed up for a long trip and though the days fly by i hope we never get used to it i like routine but i’d love to see more of the world it’s so easy to forget how many great things can happen in a day and it’s hard to remember not everyone has something sarcastic to say it’s so easy to forget how many great things can happen in a day and it’s good to remember you can always find something nice to say
