Nothing we had gets taken away
Might learn the value of it some day
Everything left gets in the way
Obstructs and disrupts and then leads us astray
It’s simple, or should be, now
Happy the unspoken vow

Wind blow me, I know we’ve done our best
Follow the road, follow, dispossessed
Leave all we had, time for something new
Each town we meet, keep on passing through
And each time you reach home, or feel distressed
Think of me heading west

Why not leave now, deep in July?
August flies quickly, watch it glide by
Pick up your bag, don’t close the door
I’m right behind you, if not before
It’s over, or should be, now,
We’ve gone through why, gone through how

You know me, I know we’ve done our best
Follow the road feeling truly blessed
Turn off the path, dim the lights, explore
Cast off, set sail, then get washed ashore
With each step get closer, then finally rest
Think of me heading west
