Oh, I see tiny castles in the sky
And it's so nice, so nice
Oh I see tiny candles in your eyes
And it's so nice, so nice

Jumping bail on passing trains
Riding along, along on the safeway
Sneaking food off sidewalk slaves
We've got it all wrong
Hoping for a lot of rain
40 days should do quite nicely

I don't think I've got it right
I've got it all wrong


Creeping along the auto train
500 miles seems a lifetime
Sleeping and moving all the same
We've got it all wrong
Calling your girlfriend on the plane
Please don't make noise while I'm reciting

I don't think I've got it right
I've got it all wrong

    Waah-Waah-Waah….. Crank this one up folks. I have no idea what John is singing about in this song but for many songs, what is the point. Since I got my first AM radio in 1965, there have been so many songs that I have loved but only later in life learned what was going on in them. Then there are still songs that I am still clueless about. John Easdale is great at writing songs that really don’t require interpretation or left to your imagination (Maybe that is why I like his songs so much). In a sense, these are the songs that can become timeless. I am not sure that this song up to that kind of standard but it still is one that when it comes on, I have to turn it up.
