ghost on the roam

It’s beautiful this time of year / the trees are awakening / the sky is suddenly so clear / the ocean is too / I paid attention to my dream / I went and I followed it / I still can’t tell you what it means  / or if it came true / and now it’s time to go / I wonder who these people are who never talked to me / I wonder where their lives will lead / and what their god will give to see them through / when I was just a kid in school / I never dreamed that someday I might grow to be / a stranger alone / so battered and blown / a ghost on the roam / still searching for home / I had to laugh a time or two / the silence was deafening / a thousand movies had to do / when nobody called / I learned to walk beside the moon / and sing to the silver sea / at night the stars inside my room / would rock me to sleep / and now it’s time to go / I wonder who these people are who never talked to me / I wonder where their lives will lead / and what their god will give to see them through / when I was just a kid in school / I never dreamed that someday I might grow to be / a stranger alone / so battered and blown / a ghost on the roam / still searching for home / now where I’m going I don’t know / it’s out of my reckoning / and if the wind blows let it blow / I’m cutting the line / tonight I’ll get down on my knees / somewhere by the silver sea / and plant a seed beneath the trees / I’m leaving behind / I’m out on the roam / still searching for home.
