about

The road is my ultimate muse. Travelling brings a sense of wonderment and inspiration that cannot be found elsewhere on this earth. After landing back home from travelling I wrote this song as a prayer and a promise to find a way to get back on the road where my heart and spirit are alive and free. No plans or destinations…just a bag of smiles… and a guitar…and a piano if possible…

lyrics

It seems like only yesterday
I thought the road would never end
Familiar was so far away
The unknown was my only friend

I was stuck without a plan
But I knew I never needed one
I’d leave it all up to chance
And a cold and hopeful outstretched thumb

A bag of smiles is all I'd bring
I’d pass them round each chance I'd get
Another town another fling
Another girl I can't forget

I remember when I chased the sun
I remember when I chased the sun
The leaves would fall that's when I'd run
I'd find a way to chase the sun

That bag of smiles is lighter now
There's not so much to go around
A part of me got lost somehow
And I hope to God it's never found

‘Cause I know it's still out there somewhere
Freer than I'll ever be
And I won't forget that time we shared
And that bag of smiles and memories

It seems like only yesterday
I thought the road would never end
Familiar was so far away
And the unknown was my only friend
Now I'm stuck here with a plan
Even though I never wanted one
I long to leave it all to chance...I'll find a way…

I'll find a way to chase the sun
