So I roam

I have fallen in love with Pandora… I catch myself going, “I love this song” to each song that comes on my station.  Rather absurd, but me none-the-less.  My station selected “Roam”, by Lijie…a female singer from the UK I’d never heard of until this evening.

Her sultry and aching voice stirred me…as only music can.  The lyrics were beautiful…and sad…and so true to my life as I know it right now.

Here they are:

ROAM

By: Lijie


We always sit and talk about the weather
And after all these letters well there’s nothing left to say
And you and I we’re both two of a kind
We’re always wondering why
Something more hasn’t come our way
But I refuse to believe
This is the only life for me

So I roam
These open roads
The nights are bitter
And the days are cold
So I roam
These open roads
In search of better
In search of home

You seem surprised I see it in your eyes
But I can’t lie
This was never what I had in mind
And walking this line pretending everything’s fine
Well this isn’t living it’s just getting by
And I maybe naïve
But not too proud to leave

So I roam
These open roads
The nights are bitter
And the days are cold
So I roam
These open roads
In search of better
In search of home

A photo I took with my Black Berry one day…. seems to be fitting.
