Wander Lust

I was born under a wanderin’ star
I was born under a wanderin’ star
Wheels are made for rollin’
Mules are made to pack
I never seen a sight that didn’t look better looking back.
I was born under a wanderin’ star
Mud can make you prisoner
And the plains can bake you dry
Snow can burn your eyes
But only people make you cry
Home is made for comin’ from
For dreams of goin’ to
Which with any luck will never come true
I was born under a wanderin’ star
I was born under a wanderin’ star
Do I know where hell is?
Hell is in Hello
Heaven is good-bye forever
It’s time for me to go
I was born under a wanderin’ star
A wanderin’ wanderin’ star
Mud can make you prisoner
And the plains can bake you dry
Snow can burn your eyes
But only people make you cry
Home is made for comin’ from
For dreams of goin’ to
Which with any luck will never come true
I was born under a wanderin’ star
I was born under a wanderin’ star
When I get to heaven
Tie me to a tree
Or I’ll begin to roam
And soon you know where I will be
I was born under a wanderin’ star
A wanderin’ wanderin’ star

French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese… I want to step off a plane and put on my hat of choice, becoming one with my surroundings and looking forward, always forward to the next adventure rather than fretting about what was behind me and can’t be changed anyway.  I want the thrill of the unknown and the exhilaration of ultimate freedom.  Towel, toothbrush and Tic Tacs, what more does a girl need?  A bright smile and a few words and the courage to put one foot in front of the other with eyes and heart wide open.

I want the whispers of love and lust, the passion of the moment, the independence of moving and going and doing and never quite catching up with myself. 

A new friend.  A new situation.  A new way to experience life. 

Inside, outside, upside down.

Come.  Run away with me.

We’ll do Jesus and Jumping Jacks.
