Go

Swapping the faces of people you know
For footsteps in places you’ve yet to explore
Not letting go, giving over control for a while
Closing the door on the place that was home
Catching a plane, destination unknown
Not letting go, giving over control for a while

I’ve known this for a long time now
That making tracks and leaving town
Was something that you’d always have to do
Every day I love you more, but Baby, you’ve got to go

Catching a wave with the sun, sand and sea
Summer for you but it’s winter for me
As seasons change, I think every day of your smile
It isn’t about flying free from a cage
But knowing that you have the freedom to change
My heart is the same, and I think every day of your smile

Got to go, you’ve, oh, got to go
To spread your wings, to leave this place
For bigger things you have to face…
