This is something I wrote back in 1980, but for reason I won't get into,
it somehow seems to be appropriate to me again at this point in my life.
Let me know what you think.

Take Me (on the road)

Said good-bye to all of you in a dream that I once had
you all stood and laughed at me said that I was mad
Now I'm on the road again and I'm free of all your schemes
Yes I'm on the road again and I'm sure to find my dreams...tonight

Won't you take me on the road won't you take me any where
Won't you take me on the road I'm tired of being here
Take me to a place where I can spread my wings
Take me to a place where I can fly

Life is funny I've been told but I see no humor here
Won't you take me to a place where everybody cares
It's not hard to see the things that I have in my heart
Got to break away from here and make a brand new start

Won't you take me on the road won't you take me any where
Won't you take me on the road I'm tired of being here
Take me to a place where I can spread my wings
Take me to a place where I can fly

Can you hear the ticking of a clock that you can't find
Won't you open up your eyes then open up your mind
Should have guessed by now my friend that time is running out
And we don't have very long to see what life's about

Won't you take me on the road won't you take me any where
Won't you take me on the road I'm tired of being here
Take me to a place where I can spread my wings
Take me to a place where I can fly

Thank you.
I'm trying to hold true to my signature line.

Hi Tokai,

Im sorry this is appropriate in your life right now. But being an optomist I can't help but say if it's been 24 yrs since this song fit your life, you're better off then most.
I like the song and I like your style. I think you write very well. Your message is strong and it comes through loud and clear.

What would we do if we couldn't express ourselves through music?
What on earth do the people do that can't? One more thing,

DON'T EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF! :D

Hey pixnstrings

Thank you for your kind words, and I realize that 24 years is a long time, but this is the first time that I've actually just wanted to leave everything and just go and not come back, but after thinking about all the good times this one (shall I say extremely) bad experience shouldn't drive me away.and I'm seem to be seeing things much clearer now.
and
"I will never give up on myself"
