That morning sky gave me a look
So I left while you were sleeping
That's all it took.
And I chalked a line south down the coast
Going where my thirst was open
For the things that I don't know;
Going where I wasn't paying
For the hurt that I owe.

One half moon sleeping by the creeks,
And a woman put me under
Her barn roof for a week.
I knew her voice before she spake.
I saw a grave dug by a preacher
Just to see what it would make.

So hold high, how faint your reasons
(Boy you'll never get on)
Don't you forget you come from nothing
(Boy you'll never get on)
That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait or I'll never get on

It's not hard to live like a ghost.
I just haunt all that I've wanted
And leave what I don't.
I dreamt a trail up to the sky
And my brothers built propellers
Just to see how far they'd fly.

So hold high, how faint your reasons
(Boy you'll never get on)
Your flashing sparrows chasing with them
(Boy you'll never get on)
Don't you forget you come from nothing
(Boy you'll never get on)
That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait or I'll never get on

That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait or I'll never get on

So hold high, how faint your reasons
Hold up high, how faint your reasons
Hold high, how faint your reasons
That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait or I'll never get on
