I met him in Minnesota, he was dark and overcast.
With long grey hair and eyes that stared through me like I was glass.
I asked where are you going to? He said I’m the wind I’m just blowing through.

He lit up a cigarette and began to talk. See the doctors told me that my body won’t hold me, my lungs are turning black. Been a lucky strike’s fool since I was in school, and there ain’t no turning back. They can’t tell me how long I’ve got, maybe months but maybe not. So I’m taking this bike and I’m riding to New York.

cause I want to see my granddaughter one last time. Want to hold her close and feel her tiny heartbeat next to mine. I want to see my son and the man he’s become. Tell him I’m sorry for the things I’ve done. And I’d do it if I had to walk. Oh I’m taking this bike and I’m riding to New York.

Through the forest of Wisconsin, that I knew as a boy. Past the skyline of Chicago and the lakes of Illinois. I lay my head in a motel bed, where my back gets sore and my eyes turn red. I listen to the trucks roll past my door. Through the fields of Ohio, there’s a sunshine paints them gold. I run just like a river runs; rapid, quick and cold. I fly through Pennsylvania and the Jersey turnpike tolls and I won’t stop till I get to New York.

cause I want to see my grandson one last time. I want to see his eyes sparkling and stare back into mine. Now my time is short, I want to see my daughter. Tell her all the things that I should’ve taught her. and I’d do it if I had to walk.

Oh I’m taking this bike and I’m riding to New York.
and I go up to the church yard one last time. Lay flowers down for the woman who gave me the best years of my life. and I’d do it if I had to walk. Yeah I’d do it if I had to walk. I’m taking this bike and I’m riding to New York.

So sing, sing at the top of your voice
Love, without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

We wish our week days away, spend our weekends in bed
We drink ourselves stupid and work ourselves dead
and all just because that’s what mom and dad said we should do

We should run through the forests, we should dance/swim in the streams
We should laugh we should cry we should love we should dream

We should stare at the stars, and not just at (these) screens
You should hear what I’m saying and know what it means to sing
Sing at the top of your voice
and love without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up, we can scare away the dark

Yeah we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter
We wish we weren’t losers and liars and quitters,
We want something more/other than just nasty and bitter
We want something real, not just hashtags and twitter

It’s the meaning of life. and it’s stream live on youtube(?)
but I bet Gangnam style will still get more views

we’re scared of flying, and swimming and shooters
but we’re all slowing dying in front of fucking computers
so sing, sing at the top of your voice
yeah and love without fear in your heart
feel, feel like you still have a choice
if we all light up we can scare away the dark

ooooohhhhh

and the tv and papers, they fill us with fear
the icecaps are melting and Al-Qaeda is here
now every curtain twitching, suburban is scared of every man that’s wearing a turban
you see, the unknown breeds fear, and fear breeds hatred
and hatred is everything that darkness created
when it came in the night, and it strangled the hope
so let’s open the windows and turn on the light

so sing, sing at the top of your voice
yeah love with all of your heart
feel, feel like you still have a choice
if we all light up we can scare away the dark

oh and sing, sing at the top of your voice
and love without fearing your heart
feel, feel like you still have a choice
if we all light up we can scare away the dark
