Song Description

A girl is very much in love with a restless man who dreams constantly of change, but can never make it happen. He feels that going on the road and finding a new place or a new scene will make his dreams come true, but spins his wheels in one place instead, never leaving. He talks constantly of leaving, and the girl who loves him wrestles with encouraging him to go, while longing to go with him to fulfill dreams of her own.

Story Behind the Song

This song was inspired by a man plagued by unfulfilled dreams.

Lyrics

Pack your heart in a box
for the restless dreamer
Write your name on the top
sign it "Someday Leaver"
Too easy to go, or too hard to stay
Here's to you boy, I hope you come back either way

Wrap your words in a knot
for the tight and even
You can only give what you got
or what fools believe in
Too easy to know, or too hard to say
If I don't want to hear it I'll hope it away

And I hope that that road holds you safe in her arms
And like mine they are loving and strong
And I hope she holds unending promise and charm
If she does won't you take me along

I folded your map how you like
so it opens easy
Now I'm shutting my eyes very tight
so I don't get greedy
To easy to go, or too hard to stay
Well I hope we don't know
And I hope we don't say
