I wanna jump on a train,
Take me out of the same old thing,
I wanna feel no pain,
Take me South, further down; take me South, further down.

I wanna jump in a lake,
Take me out to an old blue spring,
I wanna swim in a cave,
Let the water cool me down, let the water cool me down.

All the fish go swimming by; they say goodnight,
And I wish the dimming sky would stay so bright.

I wanna hop on a plane,
To any place with a tire swing,
I wanna home on the range,
Just to keep me on the ground, just to keep me on the ground.

I wanna drive in the rain,
Or in the sun it's all the same,
I wanna step on the breaks,
Hope to let it slow me down, hope to let it slow me down.

While the trucks go speeding past I'm going awfully fast,
Don't have a million bucks for gas so I make it last,
All the clouds go floating by big, round, and white,
And I wish the dimming sky would stay so bright.

I wanna walk through the store,
Buy me something that I can't afford,
Make a bed on the floor,
With the blankets that I found, with the blankets that I found.

I"ll awake in the street,
Reminiscing on a hazy dream, wonder if I'm asleep,
Let the water wake me up, let the water wake me up.

    Lyric CorrectionI love this song! I think you might have misheard a couple things, though.

    --------------------
    I wanna jump on a train,
    Take me out of the same old thing.
    I wanna feel no pain,
    Take me South, further down; take me South, further down.

    I wanna jump in a lake,
    Take me out to an old blue spring.
    I wanna swim in a cave,
    Let the water cool me down, let the water cool me down.

    All the fish go swimming by; they say goodnight,
    And I wish the dimming sky would stay so bright.

    I wanna hop on a plane,
    To any place with a tire swing,
    I wanna home on the range,
    Just to keep me on the ground, just to keep me on the ground.

    I wanna drive in the rain,
    Or in the sun it's all the same.
    I wanna step on the breaks,
    Hope to let it slow me down, hope to let it slow me down.

    While the trucks go speeding past, I'm going all but fast.
    Don't have a million bucks for gas so I make it last.
    All the clouds go floating by: big, round, and white.
    And I wish the dimming sky would stay so bright.

    I wanna walk to the store,
    Buy me something that I can't afford,
    Make a bed on the floor,
    With the blankets that I found, with the blankets that I found.

    I'll awake in the street,
    Reminiscing on a hazy dream, wonder if I'm asleep.
    Let the water wake me up, let the water wake me up.
