lyrics

We’re far away now
From everything we thought we’d be
The lovers left in their jet planes
The fishermen went back to sea

Lying up on the rooftop
Looking up at the sky
Finding shapes in the clouds
For a moment
before they pass by

Where do you wanna go?
Where do you wanna go?
It’s okay if you don’t know

1997
Dandelion wish in the wind
Talking with my imaginary friends
In the backyard in Michigan

We create stories
of who we used be
Like looking for a ghost
in an empty house
When the future is too hard to see

Where do you wanna go?
Where do you wanna go?
Where do you wanna go?
It’s okay if you don’t know

Never thought I would be the one
To think that I would be the one
To blink and life would be this far along
Never thought I would be the one
To think that I would be the one
To blink and life would be this far along
It feels like life’s a joke
But it’s all mirrors and smoke
We cannot really tell just who the joke is on

Where do you wanna go?
Where do you wanna go?
Where do you wanna go?
Where do you wanna go?
And it’s okay if you don’t know
