Getting restless

Destiny you can’t control
That’s cool
I work better alone
Give me space, gimme some good air to breathe

 

As my time in Maine draws closer, I’m having some trouble being patient. I’m all packed, I’ve got all my gear, and all I want is to be out on the trails. Having this album on repeat certainly hasn’t helped. If you haven’t listened to Nahko, check out his stuff.

This will always be the first song I listen to on a long road trip. Chuck Ragan really embodies the urge to wander in his music.

Did you ever wander far from home?
Far from what is safe and comfortable?
Trading all your demons for the moon
And sleeping till the sun makes it all true.

I don’t know how long I’ve been gone
And I can’t say when I’ll get home.
I’ll keep my engine clean and strong
And run this soul where it belongs.

Somewhere I can hear a lonesome train
Burning in a direction I can’t name.
I’ll shut my eyes and lay these bones to rest
Off the beaten path we all know best.

I don’t know how long I’ve been gone
And I can’t say when I’ll get home.
I’ll keep my engine clean and strong
And run this soul where it belongs.
Maybe I’m just spinning wheels lost in a world
That lost the thrill of living on the edge until
It’s time for the bedroll, until the ember’s gone.
