Lyrics[]

Well, you know it and I know it, I'm gonna be a star
You won't, you won't get me very far
Don't say hello, it's already time to go

Oh, the wind is carrying
Me home, me home, me home again

Well, you know it and I know it, I'm gonna be a star
You won't, you won't get me very far
You're so alive, back in the countryside

(Ah)

Oh, my soul, rise up and go
Beyond, beyond to what you know
