Careful, the boy opened his eyes
His cheeks were hot
He wiped his tears and pulled his blankets up under his chin
The rainbow brightened and swooshed from side to side
It doubled in size and overtook the room
Coloring the walls and bedspread

Ask me where I'm going
I'll tell you where I've been.
Ask me who I am
And I'll say that I'm your friend.

Ask me what I'm doing
I'll tell you I don't know.
Just trying to live through life
And now it's time to go.

Back when I was just a kid
I used to think the world was big,
But really it ain't that big at all.
(Not at all)

Foreign lands in far away
Until I learned the truth one day,
In reality the world's quite small.
(World so small)

I wanted to sail across the sea
To find another place to be
Where I could live so happily,
Well that would be the life for me.

I wanted to fly the sky so vast,
In a jet-plane traveling fast,
Looking out the looking glass,
Watching the clouds go past.

Ask me where I'm going
I'll tell you where I've been.
Ask me who I am
And I'll say that I'm your friend.

Ask me what I'm doing
I'll tell you I don't know.
Just trying to live through life
And now it's time to go.

Time to go oh oh
Now it's time to go oh oh

I've been high and I've been low,
Seems like everywhere I go
Is a place I could call home.
(Home sweet home)

Yesterday is in my shadow
And today is a new battle,
Tomorrow's the great unknown.
(Great unknown)

Got my tickets, bags are packed.
Forcing my head no turning back.
The smoke is white, the coal is black,
The engine's pushing off this track.

Ship is setting sail again.
It's just me against the wind.
Where loneliness is my old friend.
Who comes to visit now and then.

(A time will come for all of us
To test that element of trust,
To climb aboard that final bus
That turns our ashes into dust.)

Ask me where I'm going
I'll tell you where I've been.
Ask me who I am
And I'll say that I'm your friend.

Ask me what I'm doing
I'll tell you I don't know.
Just trying to live through life
And now it's time, it's time to go.

Now it's time to go
Now it's time to go
Now it's time to go

The walls shrank and expanded
The bed lifted off the floor
