Michael Peter Smith

Well surprise surprise
Looking into your eyes
To see so far away
Right in my own backyard
To have visions like this
Not be so hard to come by
To see why a word and a kiss
Can take the world away

And even though you haven't taken me
To Paris or Rome
You're never gonna catch me saying
That you never take me anywhere because
The place that you've been taking me to
Is way way closer to home
And I don't know where I'm going
But wherever it is
You take me   There
You take me   There

And everyday this wild winter stays
To rattle our windows
The hotter the sand
On this beach where we run
The bluer the sky
The greener the billows
The whiter the strand
The brighter the sun

And even though you haven't taken me
To Paris or Rome...

Here's what Mr. Chuang Tzu has to say
About home towns
If your life is true
You don't have to go far
To find heaven and earth
On the rim of your doorway
To have ocean and sky
Everywhere that you are

And even though you haven't taken me
To Paris or Rome...

Recorded on: There, Such Things are Finely Done, Two Man Band Two
