There's nothing I can say, nothing I can say,
The words would never leave me,
And nothing I can do, nothing I can do,
I'm staring at the ceiling,
Just see another light, see another light,
Come at me from somewhere,
And I won't look away, I won't look away,
I will try to go there,

All of the ways that I have tried to understand,
Have taken me further from the place that I have been,
And maybe the reason I have strayed so far from home,
Is I have insisted on traveling alone,

The silver and the gold, silver and the gold,
Are laying here beside me,
And this is getting old, this is getting old,
Cause they will never find me,
Will you come around, will you come around?
Come around and find me,
And take me by the hand, take me by the hand,
And walk along beside me,

All of the ways that I have tried to understand,
Have taken me further from the place that I have been,
And maybe the reason I have strayed so far from home,
Is I have insisted up on traveling alone (Alone again) alone again,

But I'm not saying that I will never know,
But never with the weight of my ego,
Hammering down upon my mind,
Assuring me that I will find,
Nothing at all,
Nothing at all,

    General Commentthis song is great.
    means a lot of things that anyone can understand in a different way.
    "There's nothing I can say, nothing I can say,
    The words would never leave me"

    General Commentthis song has awesome melody throughout the verses, so catchy. i think this song is about him being a loner, and sort of finding comfort in that.

    General CommentI love that even though many of Sherwood's songs are about hardship or dealing with uncomfortable things, they still soud so up-beat, as it to say (like the name of their album) "Sometimes life sucks, but we can sing about it and keep going on". This song displays this perfectly I think.

    General CommentThis song grew slow on me. It could be about not wanting to face an issue... or not accepting help from others, always wanting to deal with your problems on your own. Could be about being misunderstood or lonely....
