Lyrics

Touch down in the middle of nowhere
Travelled 2,000 miles just to get there
Nobody sat at home, worried
Waiting up for me

Tell the date by the city I'm playing
When to sleep all depends where I'm staying
Curse the dawn with a new or an old friend
Every now and then

People pass on the street
There's always someone to meet
And friends calling me up on the phone
There just ain't no way to be lonely when you’re not alone

The trail of anonymous places
Mapped hard in the lines on our faces from all these of distant places
We raise a glass in a toast to what’s come to be
Freedom's monotony

Between singing the blues
And long nights with cheap booze
I make family wherever I roam
There just ain't no way to be homesick when you've got no home

No time for routine
Every day a new scene
I tell you this life ain’t so bad
There just ain’t no way for you to miss something you never had
I say, there just ain't no way for me to miss something I never had
