Inspired by "The Mouse and His Child" by Russell Hoban

lyrics

The sense of danger must not disappear
The way is short and steep
However gradual it looks here
You will have to leap

Will you tell me how you feel inside
Beside what’s standing there
Like a song inside the sunlight
A sigh inside the air

PRECHORUS:
Take my hands and hang on tight
The sky is blue, the sun is bright

CHORUS:
And if you’ll dance beside me
As tramps we’ll make our way
To see what lies beyond the coming day
We can be self-winding
And travel on our own
We’ll move ahead until we find our home

It all seems much in little here
With How and What and Why
Don’t let it take you anywhere
Away from you and I

What are we and who we really are
We must wait and see
Steady forward though the road is hard
Journey on with me

PRECHORUS
CHORUS

Don’t let them tell you that what you’ll be
Is what you’re wound to do
Can you see past the last dog?
The answer’s up to you

CHORUS
