Send back the world
There's too much night for me
The sky is much too high
To shelter me when darkness falls
Four cabin walls
Would be just right for me
I need a threshold I can cross
When I can sit and gather moss
Forevermore
A million miles away behind the door!

Roll up the plains
There's too much view for me
There's so much space between
The waiting heart, and whispered word
It's never heard
One room will do for me
Where every evening I can stare
At someone smiling from his chair
Across the floor
A million miles away behind the door!

Where every evening I can stare
At someone smiling from his chair
Across the floor
A million miles away behind the door
No fears, no fools
No lies, no rules
Just doing with my life
What life is for
A million miles away behind the door!
