Almost Anywhere

Lyrics: John Perry Barlow
Music: Mike Bolger, Paul Bolger, Mark Hague

One of the songs Barlow wrote with Mr Blotto

I can't remember everywhere I've been today
But fireflies don't ask the wind where it's been
Or where it means to stay, they ride it anyway
Still when I come blowing in, you're standing there
Grinning through the knives you glare
But I don't care, I can sleep anywhere
Well, almost anywhere
And I've been accused of being a child
As if it was a crime
Well come and be a child sometime

So why are you in such a rush to be so old?
No matter when the fire dies
You realise the stars can grow so cold
Oh they grow so cold
And I don't see why it's so hard to understand
Staying high I learn to fly
Like Peter Pan and almost never land
Almost Neverland
And I've been accused of being a child
I've been one all this time
And it's much too late to change my mind
