I wish I had me a turbo-engine rocket-fuel jet car 
Don't know where I'd go but I sure know that I'd go far 
Head a million miles from here, find myself a new home 
What if that place turns out to be the same as the place from which I came? 

What if I've got it good here and I don't even know? 
What if that's why I'm still here when I really want to go? 
I want to get away, I want to stay 
I want to be free, I want you to build your world around me 
I wish I could understand the meaning of my dreams 
I wish I could write a song as good as Visions of Johanna 

When I do will the heavens open and the angels sing hosanna? 
I mean, how will I know I've done it? How will I realize? 
When I sing it will a vision of you dance before my eyes? 
And having something like that I'd have to try to top 
Might be even worse than never having not NO! 
I wish I could hear what I'm saying now and smile 
All the same, I haven't finished a song in a long, long while 

I dreamed the world was crumbling all around me 
There in the rubble on the ground you found me 
And I pull you tight I want to hold you close 
At the same time I can't stay, I've got to go 
And there's that car but it's all out of gas 
I can tell by the speedometer it's the kind that goes real fast 
I could be someone, be someone, you know I surely could 
If I could stand on the rock where Moses stood
