When You Go

Lyrics

All this dreaming gets you nowhere

All these strange embarrassed thoughts

That lead you to another round

Contradiction is everywhere

No affliction breaks you down

As quickly as your own despair

 

But when you go

No looking down

You break the barriers that keep you on the ground

But when you go

 

All I’ve ever seen of Egypt

I was reading in a book

Someone who’d been there gave to me

But I have never seen the pyramids

I have never walked the path

Between the Sphinx and the Red Sea

 

But when you go

No looking down

You break the barriers that keep you on the ground

But when you go

You move ahead

Release the storm clouds that live inside your head

 

All I have is this confession

That this fear is holding me

So I better run, run to a better place

And close my eyes and dive into the sea

 

But when you go

No looking down

You break the barriers that keep you on the ground

But when you go

You move ahead

Release the storm clouds that live inside your head
