Wandering Star

Sung by Sonata
original by MystSaphyr

At the platform’s edge
I stand and wait
With ticket in hand
And my spirits high
The conductor waves
And I am finally on my way

Goodbye!

As I board the train
I turn and give
A glance behind
One is all that I need
At the whistle’s blow
My journey’s only just begun

The world is waiting for me

All I know
Is that I want to go
Far away
There’s no turning back today

Wandering star, I’ll write my own story
Down the railroad tracks
The beating of my heart echoes
The rhythm of the click & clack

Miles and miles are laid out before me
On and on I go
A single suitcase sitting by my side
Holds everything I own

Where I’m heading’s inconsequential
Hope I’ll be there soon
The future’s looking bright, and where I’ve been is
As distant as the moon

Onwards to my next new adventure
Anywhere is fine
The constellation of points on the map
Paint a portrait of the passing time

As the hours pass
And hills roll past
I watch the clouds
Chase the sun from the sky
Day fades to dusk
And I can finally close my eyes

Goodnight!

The morning brings
Another chance
To spread my wings
And take to flight
Though I’m on my own
I’m finally on the path I chose

I’m sure that I’ll be alright

All I know
Is that I want to go
Someplace new
There’s no telling what I’ll do

On the way, I’ll write my next chapter
Down the railroad tracks
The beating of my heart echoes
The rhythm of the click & clack

Miles and miles now distance me from
The town that I’d outgrown
The other passengers are just the same
With stories of their own

Where I’m heading’s inconsequential
Hope I’ll be there soon
There’s so much more to see, more songs to sing
So I’ll hum a different tune

Onwards to my next new adventure
Left my fears behind
The constellation of points on the map
Paint a portrait of the passing time

Turn the page, my story continues
Down the railroad tracks
The beating of my heart echoes
The rhythm of the click & clack

Onwards to the next destination
Somewhere close I’m told
I hold my suitcase tight and push away
Those memories of old

Where I’m heading’s inconsequential
Hope I’ll be there soon
The future’s looking bright, and where I’ve been is
As distant as the moon

Wandering star, without hesitation
New sights to behold
It’s time my life began, ’cause now I know
There’s nowhere that I cannot go

Whoa-oh
