Nowhere Fast

When I was a boy

teaching me about wonder.
one of my beloved teaching me about wonder.

I went running off to school
Went home every evening
Like there was nothing else to do

One night I looked out my window
And while the moon was racing past
I sat up there and wondered
Am I goin’ nowhere fast?

I see the telephone post
I watch a sparrow fly
And all the lonely souls know
But I just drive on by

And I think of all the dreams there
That never came to pass
And I can’t help but wonder
Hey are we goin’ nowhere fast?

And I don’t have an answer
And I don’t have a clue
Why people act so crazy
But I guess I’m crazy too
A little bit crazy too

I watch my baby sleeping
It’s been a long hard day
And she looks so peaceful
Lost in the faraway

Sometimes I just wanna hold her
And make one moment last
But all I do is wonder
Hey are we goin’ nowhere fast?
Nowhere fast
