I never thought it matter, never thought it mattered so much to me exactly where I put my feet. I was wrong. I drink a strong cup of coffee. A long time ago, I had a home. A corner where I could be alone. So goodbye my solid ground. I'm an engine, I won't break down. A lonely chord without a song, searching for an orchestration where I belong. Where will I hang up my raincoat when this day is over? Like a leaf without a tree, nothing to cover over me. I'm like a character from a story, I don't exist. I owe a lot to these kids who are (like) family. They've helped me out with their endless generosity

    General CommentI can't believe no one's commented on this. This song is absolutely amazing - It's about not knowing what you're doing but going forward anyway. I seem to recall reading an interview where the band said it was about being on tour, but I can't remember exactly. But either way, it's such a good song.

    General CommentOne of my favourites i do believe. :D
    I think this always gives me that feeling of hope & taking chances & has that kind of power to fuel your passion for something or finding something in your life...

    Anyway, lovely. (: Like cupcakes & tea.
    Yorkshire gold tea & my little pony cupcakes that is.
