Across the Border

Take Me Away


Walking down the avenue
Playing fast and loose
Looking in the shop windows
There’s not a lot of use

Counting down the minutes
Stretching out the hours
Walking through the city streets
Staring at the towers

I’m a man of the moment
Living for today
What the future holds
I really couldn’t say
I’m a man of the moment
A realtime operator
What the future holds
I’ll worry ‘bout it later

Dossing down in doorways
Sleeping in the park
Waking up to morning sun
I’m up with the lark

Breakfast in the greasy spoon
Eating bread and jam
Dreaming of the bacon
I can’t afford the ham

I’m a man of the moment
Living for today
What the future holds
I really couldn’t say
I’m a man of the moment
A realtime operator
What the future holds
I’ll worry ‘bout it later

Can I say, can I say
Would you take me away
If not tomorrow, maybe the next day
Can I say, can I say
Would you take me away
If not tomorrow, maybe the next day

I’m a man of the moment
Living for today
What the future holds
I really couldn’t say
I’m a man of the moment
A realtime operator
What the future holds
I’ll worry ‘bout it later
