Across the Border

Window To The World


The window to the world beholds the freedom that you seek
When sitting at the your office desk days turning into weeks
The thought of independence of freedom and desire
Is tempered with reality that extinguishes your fire

The door that opens to the other side can stop you in your tracks
The door that opens to the other side defies you looking back

What holds you back why hesitate what hinders you from choice
Is respectability and decency the overriding voice
Move on break out decide to take the leap
Into the world beyond the door that wakens you from sleep

The door that opens to the other side can stop you in your tracks
The door that opens to the other side defies you looking back

With worldly goods discarded and rucksack packed to go
Farewells are said and ties are cut its time to hit the road
The first step through the open door is the hardest of them all
But the weight of life has disappeared and now you’re walking tall

The door that opens to the other side can stop you in your tracks
The door that opens to the other side defies you looking back

The sights he’s seen the lands he’s crossed have filled him with surprise
As to why he listened to others and heeded their advice
No man should wish their life away or take the easy way out
It’s there to grab with open arms living’s what it’s all about

The door that opens to the other side can stop you in your tracks
The door that opens to the other side defies you looking back

(Jameson/Rowley)
