lyrics

Trapped inside in the daylight
Breathing the same air til I go for a walk at night
Gotta stay alert, sometimes people try and hurt you
Never know if I'll be alright

It's a world full of violence
While the planet spins around, I stay shut up in bitter silence
We lock up our front doors to keep out the world wars
Right outside, I wish that I was

Like the Blue River
I wanna run
When the sky turns black
I'll be coming on back
To my bed, after kickin' in the sun
I wanna bathe myself in creation
Gaze at constellations in the night
Oh, I would rejoice, raise my hands, raise my voice
I'd be like you if I knew I was gonna be alright

Am I gonna be alright?

Got a ticket to nowhere
Wish that I could say that I belong somewhere
Wish that I could know why my parents let me go
Then I could rest, like all the rest

Then I could be someone like you
Whole life ahead of me, so much left to do
And all the things I'd be
If I could let the world see
The price I'd pay
To spend a day
And walk the world
In my own way

I would run till my legs grown tired
Til my breath was all run out
I would dance in the city square
And sing, and yell, and shout
I would swim against the current,
Up the steam to the river's end
I wanna know I got just what I ought:
I wanna know I've got a friend

Like the Blue River
I wanna run
When the sky turns black
I'll be coming on back
To my bed, after kickin' in the sun
I wanna bathe myself in creation
Gaze at constellations in the night
Oh, I would rejoice, raise my hands, raise my voice
I wanna know in my soul

Like the Blue River
I wanna run
When the sky turns black
I'll be coming on back
To my bed, after kickin' in the sun
I wanna bathe myself in creation
Gaze at constellations in the night
Oh, I would rejoice, raise my hands, raise my voice
I wanna know in my soul
That I'm gonna be alright

I think we're gonna be alright

I think I'm gonna be alright
