A man said Why, why does traveling
in cars and in trains make him feel sad,
a beautiful sadness.
I've felt this before.
It's the people in the cities you'll never know,
it is everything you pass by,
wondering, will you ever return?

The colors of rowboats, the greens and the blues.
Orange grove side streets you only see halfway.
And beaches in winter
and when kites are flown.
It's the people in the cities you'll never know,
it is everything you pass by,
wondering, will you ever return?

    General CommentI can't believe NO ONE HAS COMMENTED!

    One of my favorite Innocence Mission songs. This nails how I feel when I travel. It's the wanderlust, but never content with the small slice of life you get to see: What else is there? What's over that hill?
