Around The World

from Road Songs by Alex McMurray

i been around the world
i seen the birds fall from the sky
i seen the paper dolls
folded and faded my o my
and every drop of rain
seems to wash away the pain
and every moonless sky
comes on like a lullaby

he used his wishes up
and now he's lost out on the road
a wound he stitches up
and goes on tearing what he sewed
and every drop of rain
might've seen him through the pain
and every moonless sky
might have been his lullaby

don’t let worry be your home
don’t let hurry be your only speed
and if you do decide to roam
may you find all you need

don't spend your love too fast
just save a little for the end
don't make your troubles last
or make 'em feel like they're your friends
‘cause every drop of rain
is going to see you through the pain
and every moonless sky
is going to be your lullaby
