all my roads have run out of pavement

all my dreams now return to dust

alone without a map or a stronger love

I only want to do what I must


So I’m going where the weather suits my clothes

I’m picking up the pieces of my will

But far away I hear an echo of

a love that must live here still


there’s music in the ears of tomorrow

there’s music in the eyes of the past

I’ll sing my song with all my heart

from my first breath to the last


then it’s goodbye to sweet California

farewell to all the ones I’ve loved

I’ll fade away into this very song

disappear into the air above
