Birds of Relocation – Track 4: Where Would I Go?

I hope you hear this song as a smile and a hug. This song is an IOU to a group whose music I adore, The Weepies. I wish I were a Weepie. This is the first of the album’s three love songs for my wife of nearly fifteen years.

“Where Would I Go?”

Where would I go, what would I do
If I lived in a world that doesn’t include you?
Like a Caesar in Rome, sacked and alone,
Dressed to the nines atop a plastic throne.

Where would I go, what would I say
Could there be a song if all the notes were the same?
Live like you’re found lost in the cure
‘Cause the life you live was never yours

Have you ever thought you’re so far gone
That you need no one?
Here’s something that’s true: you’re worth clinging to
I’m living proof

Where would I go, how would I find
My way through the dark to be by your side
I would be lost, adrift on the sea
On a homemade craft at the mercy of me

Have you ever thought you’re so far gone
That you need no one?
Here’s something that’s true: you’re worth clinging to
I’m living proof

Where would you go and what would you do
To live in a world that won’t give up on you?
Time takes its soul from you.
Last thing I remember I was falling apart
A little bit crazy and a hole in my heart
Time takes its toll on you
Time takes its toll on you

Have you ever thought you’re so far gone
Here’s something that’s true: you’re worth clinging to
You light up a room and make the whole thing new
When I’m with you there’s nothing to lose,
And nothing to prove
It’s true, you’re worth clinging to
I’m living proof

Sing like you feel it
Breathe like you mean it
Live like you need it
(Don’t forget to) breathe like you need it
