lyrics

Under my breath
I say strange lands I roam
Less of a stranger there
than when at home

Swiftly they pass me by
Tender green vines
Tall slender pines

Like freeways shrouded in fog
I could not tell
to speed up or slow down

But you knew then
you stayed behind
as I chose to go on

Under my breath
I say strange lands I roam
Less of a stranger there
than when at home

Swiftly they pass me by
Tender green vines
Tall slender pines

I could see
the birds in your eyes
flying away
over Altamont pass

Last time I was there
you would stay
would leave
Doesn't matter now
I don’t remember at all

Pressing my nose
against passenger window
Staring at lazy windmills
wondering at the breeze
Caught in the blades

Could I be there
sitting on the side of a hill
Watching cars go by

Under my breath
I say strange lands I roam
Less of a stranger there
than when at home

Upward the mountain-tops
Dreamily gaze,
Olive-trees tinting them
silvery grey
