  1. When You Go

From the album Transparent

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
