I needed to cross an ocean
I needed to find some time
Sick of being in slow motion
I’m sick of writing the same lines.
I came to find a fresh new picture
But found that it was all the same
It’s just that it’s so much bigger
Than you could ever fit inside a frame.
Sometimes I want to trade my life in
So I can try to see it all
I know I wouldn’t make it halfway
But brother, what a way to fall.
I know I haven’t got the courage,
I know I’d miss my comfy room.
I know that when the summer’s over
I’ll be back to writing cold and mournful tunes
But we can start again in June.
Well I wrote this song on someone else’s strings,
So I’ll remember that though the world can sting
It can be absolutely fucking great
Just around the bend.
Dan Danger was a stranger turned a friend.
So if you ask me what we’re here for
You want to know my thoughts on life?
It’s just to go and find that feeling
Exactly what I felt tonight
You might just want to kick a football
Or you might love a boy or girl.
You might find your soul in music
Or have to travel round the world.
Then you should travel round the world.
