There's No Place Like Nowhere

Picture yourself if you will

Cerulean skies and wind in your hair

You haven't ever know freedom until

You're on a boat headed for nowhere

Picture yourself he said

As he drew me a sketch

Tracing the sun and writing my name

Lenny smiled like a schoolboy

As he finished his etch

Disappearing as quick as he came

There's no place like nowhere he wrote

When you're out in the swell of the water

All you can do is sail the great blue

When life gets a little bit harder

Suddenly someone is there on the radio

Mad Hatter laughter and Merseybeat hair

Nowhere Boy's gone and Nowhere Man's sleeping

And I'm sailing away off to nowhere.
