Lyrics

I was born in Boston March of '85
Ponder over motion
Every moment is alive

I've always been a trav'ler
On the road and in my head
Now I'm not gone forever
I've just gone on ahead

I've just gone on ahead
You know I had to go
Always felt and never said 
We all can see the show

I'm still you number
One and will be
Waiting at the gate 
So saddle up and do the do
And never complicate

See me in the blue smoke
Feel me in the breeze 
Hear me in the bird song
I'll help you find your keys
Free in the wood smoke
In the beating of your heart
Here right beside you
We never are apart

Like a road less traveled 
I travel all alone
We're all on the same path 
We're all just goin home

Now there's no going backwards 
No yearning for instead
Now I'm not gone forever
I've just gone on ahead


See me in the blue smoke
Feel me in the breeze
Hear me in the bird song
I'll help you find your keys
Free in the wood smoke
In the beating of your heart
Here right beside you
We never are apart
