Lyrics

A gentle hand woke me up
To a morning dark as coal
We caught ourselves an early train
From Louisville to Toronto
My brother there to beat me up
My mother there to ease the pain
And we were off to Canada
To start our lives again

And all I know
In this world we travel
Under the stars our lives unravel
One big mystery
We just look for love

And being only six years old
That exodus seemed strange
The train kept clicking on towards
Some destiny my folks arranged
And sitting in that window seat
My tender years secured for me
I wondered if some trains get lost
And what my lunch might be

And all I know
In this world we travel
Under the stars our lives unravel
One big mystery
We just look for love

We look in all the strangest places
The roar of crowds the lost embraces
And faces where there are no traces anyway
We look where we will never find it
And die a bit when left behind it
And lie a bit pretending we don't mind it

That Yankee soil is far behind
I travel different ground
Knowing I've been lost far more
Than I'll ever be found
And sitting in this window seat
Digesting what has passed me by
I'm still that hungry passenger
Just waiting to arrive

And all I know
In this world we travel
Under the stars our lives unravel
One big mystery
We just look for love
