A Song for Best Friends

lyrics

There’s still another story just around the bend

And you will never guess just where the story ends

Let’s go

You gotta stop trying to try too hard

The sabbatical is over but you’re living in the dark

Let’s go

I’m gonna fly in a bird’s eye view to the plains

To a place where everybody knows my name, no matter how long that it takes

Over the scarecrows and the scared people

Over the clouds and through all the steeples, and at the speed of sound

I will be bending light and turning my luck around

Traded every last cent that I thought I had

For the meaning of life but I was kind of disappointed

Woke up to a world that I didn’t recognize

And asked around too many times to find the winning side

I’m gonna walk in a bird’s eye view to the plains

To a place where everybody knows my name, no matter how long that it takes

Over the scarecrows and the scared people

Over the clouds and through all the steeples, and at the speed of sound

I will be bending light and turning my luck around

I traded everything that I thought I had

For the meaning of life but I was kind of disappointed

I’m gonna fly in a bird's eye view to the plains

To a place where everybody knows my name, and at the speed of sound

I will be bending light and turning my luck around

In a place surrounded by my favorite sounds

In a world that I won’t ever let me down
I will be bending light and turning my luck around
