Countless nights of daydream Every night the same Rolls the Caravan In mist and pouring rain Wheels they wear the road The engine howls and roars We’re ghosts in the night Searching for repose When the dawn is breaking with the morning light We finally close our dried eyes Just to dream about rolling with the caravan And when the golden light Of daybreak hits the road We vanish with the night When everybody sleeps Our eyes are open wide There’s nobody to slow us Under the mantle of the night How long we’re gonna go Heaven only knows Only what’s past is certain For the addict of the road When the dawn is breaking...

A baby was born and did not wail, That’s how he started his struggle of life. That time and place For a problem child it looked hard to get by. Days in the town were gray and wasted. Standard wounds from school - he collected all. There are things a mother can’t help with No matter how hard she tries. Now he’s six feet tall and strong, He don’t regret at all. Though he leaves his past He still recalls so much fun. When the time for goodbye’s over He can’t see through the rain of his eyes. Another chapter’s begun and he hits it with a heart Full of heartbreaking yellowed photographs. Mum was hard to comfort. When her son suffered she suffered twice. She blamed herself for all the bad cards Life dealt to her child. When you couldn’t be there to save me Was when I learned self-defense, When you had nothing more to give me Was when I learned how to take care of myself. Mum, I’m six feet tall and strong! I don’t regret at all! Though I leave my past I still recall so much fun! When the time for goodbye’s over I can’t see through the rain of my eyes. Another chapter’s begun and I hit it with a heart Full of heartbreaking, yellowed photographs.

Empty plains as far as you can see In the evening turning into red, That’s where dusk found us after hot days Out of town it blessed us with its breeze. How many times I left town forever But forever never took so long. I was just a child always swinging back and forth Between freedom and the house where I belonged. You’re never gone for good ‘Cause distance never overcomes blood And if you leave your roots A fallen tree is all you are. Now my life is almost like a different story, Can’t believe that years have passed since then But anywhere tomorrow will find me I’ll always have No man’s land’s word with me too. Where the wind whispers so wise Your aching soul respires No man’s land heals your heart You’re never gone for good…

Night after day, Day after night, Line after line In the middle of nothing. Miles, countless miles. Go! That’s the price. You chose this life In the middle of nothing. Try not to think about what’s gone As you’re drifting on and on Always closer never there. Don’t try to measure what’s ahead It just gives you a dizzy head. On and on. Always another step on an endless way. I’m tired, so very tired. Lord I need a guiding light So I won’t be stuck In the middle of nothing. Night after day, Day after night, Line after line In The middle of nothing.

Here I’m staring At the mirror asking Why I’m everything But what I planned to be? Is it my fault? Is it life’s reward? Have I passed the point Of having control over the wheel? Nobody says life’s easy to take as it is But you’ve got to be strong my friend and have no doubt That you will try You’ll always try You’ll always fly Fly beyond trouble and pain. When I was younger I used to hurt people In particular The ones I loved most. Every day I regret And wonder if I’ve changed yet And not to pay back The painful scratches of life? Nobody says life’s easy to take as it is… Fly, fly, fly I believe that struggle is appreciated somewhere And I believe that trying is never in vain, Even if it’s the wrong way you’re running And you feel the mountain’s not worth climbing. Keep on trying To fly higher and higher!

Are you feeling tired And running out of steam? Fallen on the ground And winded on your knees? Listen brother let me make it clear, No need for mama’s boys here. Strong win weak lose Simple rule. All you can count on is you. Time to meet Your hidden strengths. Get what you deserve Or deserve what you get. Listen brother, you are not lost, Just at the door of being more than the most. Strong win weak lose Simple rule. All you can count on is you.

Out here in the distance Drifting through the days I’m wondering if I’m moving Or is it the world going by? I see fields and mountains And rivers of time flowing by And a place in my dreams That keeps me going all the time. The engine is tirelessly humming A monotonous lullaby But I keep my eyes on the road So you can dream on my side. It’s a long journey to Canaan. Do you sometimes wonder where we’re heading? On the long road to Canaan God knows how long we’ll be traveling. Just listen to the lullaby The soundtrack to our life going by When on the long road to Canaan We keep on roaming together. I love the way we spend hours talking, Sometimes hours without a word, As I pull up and you take the wheel When I get tired. The way we keep the faith in each other In a place we’ve seen in our dream, As we tell each other it could be closer Than we’d believe. I know we’ll never stop believing In a better place to find And we’ll never give up Leaving the miles behind. Do you sometimes wonder where we’re heading, Peering the edge of the land? ‘Cause something constantly tells me We’re already there It’s a long journey in Canaan As long as we go together. It’s a journey in Canaan. I couldn’t wish for any better. Just listen to the lullaby The soundtrack to our life going by! We’re on a journey in Canaan, Let’s keep on roaming together! On the journey in Canaan Let’s keep on roaming together! Let’s keep on roaming together!

Tumbling down the river of my ordinary life I’m always lost in things happening to me, But sometimes somehow I can see it from above just like from a bridge And the river really knows the way to the sea Homeward bound. Oh, how much I chased some things and did not see I didn’t need them at all Sometimes I’d cry for all the wasted lifetime, But now I see it’s just the way we learn more ‘bout ourselves and that’s how We are led by our own mistakes Homeward bound. Isn’t it funny that kisses I would make undone, Songs I should have never played, Friends I would forget forever, They are who lead me back to the way Homeward bound.
