lyrics

Maybe I’ll move
To the hills of Ireland
Try to learn how not to prove
Myself to anyone
Maybe buy an instrument
That I don’t know yet
Pour my soul and my sentiment
Pour myself into learning it

Maybe I’ll head on
Head on to Chicago
Find some friends I can lean on
Find some hope for tomorrow
Cause if home’s where the heart is
Won't you tell me where’s mine
Cause the truth of the matter is
They’re both hard to find

One of these days I’ll break free from the cage
Throw all the cast iron off & away
But try as I might, oh and try as I may
To cast off my burdens, seems they’re here to stay

Maybe I’ll head down
Head down to the southern coast
And get lost in the ocean
In my grandfather’s boat
Walk along the shoreline
Feel the earth neath my toes
And I'll head the tide's warning
As it comes and it goes

One of these days I’ll break free from the cage
Throw all the cast iron off & away
But try as I might, oh and try as I may
To cast off my burdens, seems they’re here to stay
Oh but I will sing
Every line
Every melody
Til I’m finally free
Of all of the trouble this life seems to bring

My family’s getting older
And so am I
And we are living further
Apart than I’d like
So maybe I’ll head up north,
To colder skies
Live with only the kind of warmth
Seen in my baby sisters eyes

One of these days I’ll break free from the cage
Throw all the cast iron off & away
But try as I might, oh and try as I may
To cast off my burdens, seems they’re here to stay
Oh but I will sing
Every line
Every melody
Til I’m finally free
Of all of the trouble this life seems to bring
