lyrics

I was down in Carolina
Lookin’ for a home but couldn’t find one.
So I fired up my engine,
Hopin’ that an end was
Somewhere waiting down the road.

I woke up half-past Nebraska.
Windows down. Endless Pasture.
Evenin’ sky was blazin’
Rusted mustang grazin’
Underneath the setting sun.

Home,
Every time I find you
I get to feelin’ like there’s somewhere else I gotta go.

Met a girl from Nova Scotia
Who was travelin’ alone
Asked her where she’s goin’
She said she missed the ocean
So she’s movin’ in slow motion toward L.A.

And she said,
“Home,
Every time I find you
I get to feelin’ like there’s somewhere else I gotta go.”

Oh, there’s somewhere else I gotta go.
So let’s go!

So I’ll drive and you look for signs
To let us know that we’ve arrived ...

Home
Every time I find you
I get to feelin’ like there’s somewhere else I gotta
Go
And every time I find you.
I get to feelin’ like there’s somewhere else I gotta go.

Oh, there’s somewhere else I gotta go.
So let’s go!
