Across every ocean
For the sake of locomotion
But I wouldn't have a notion
How to save my soul
I walk down the sidewalk
Run down the boardwalk
Stop and make small talk
But I can't say no to you

I can't say no I can't say yes
I can't' even write down my own address
I can't touch Heaven it's a little too far
It's the only way to travel
Got dreaming on a parr
I'm staring through the window
Wonder where you are
Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour

Across every nation
From the harbour to the station
It's a source of inspiration
It's a power to the state
They run down the railways
Sail across the seaways
Fly through the airways
But they can't say no
To you

I can't stand up I can't stand still
I know you wouldn't like it if I told you how I feel
I just want to say that it's only common sense
But the words always fail me at my own expense
I'm staring out the window
Wonder where you are
Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour

Across every ocean
For the sake of locomotion
But I wouldn't have a notion
How to save my soul
I walk down the sidewalk
Run down the boardwalk
Stop and make small talk
But I can't say no to you
