They say it’s a long day’s journey
After opening night
They tell me I have to slow down
But it feels too right
I might write a novel
Or dance in Paree
The biggest wave in the ocean
Could never scare me

There’s no place called never
No distance too far
I can reach the sky
Grab a handful of stars
It doesn’t seem there’s anything
I can’t do
But if it weren’t for you
I’d be simply — simply blue

My home is where my heart is
I’ve always been free
Whenever a door is locked
I seem to have the key
I might climb Mt. Everest
Or hitchhike to Maine
There’s no cloud that could cover me
I welcome the rain
