Jack and the Journey West

I've got a vision and an atlas
and the pennies i have saved
pressed against my pocket
with dried flowers and your face
on a picture on the dashboard of my heart.

I've got a mystery i'm solving
with each passing corn field view
instead of flying over
i'm fighting my way through,
i'm going where going men have gone.

Jack and the Journey West
searching for a different point of view
squinty eyed in all the light and mess
this is the stuff that doing doers do.

Jack and the journey west
on the road, just to risk the wind and hope
and maybe, driving long enough
we'll end right back at home.
