Everything Wants to Go

by Alex McMurray Velvety Pod Music (BMI)

do the birds wait for winter the same as you and i

time now once again to say goodbye

something in the shadows whispers and they know

that everything everything everything wants to go


grew up in the newsstand but school just never took

never raised my head to take a look

chanced to meet a sailor drifting on the row who said

everything everything everything wants

everything everything everything wants

everything wants to go


go where the wind is wild and free

where a love like ours is supposed to be


we can leave the world beneath us before the flowers bloom

we'll climb aboard a rocket for the moon

i would never leave you but you oughta know

everything wants to go


everything is just another word

for all the stories you ever heard

you can go around the world

you can search far and wide

but the going'll be easier with a friend by your side

through anything and everything


we'll keep a peice of somewhere safe for you and i

we'll sew it up inside a lullaby

its a thing of beauty but its not for show

because everything wants to go
