lyrics

I had a dream the other night,
we were like Cortez.
We landed on a foreign shore
with all our horses

On pain of death, we traveled far,
we found our glory
you took the pen, you wrote the tale
I'll tell your story

On your own, your own way
you took it all
On your own, your own way
you never fall
On your own, your own way

Tropic soul, northern Illinois,
it is much too cold.
They left you on this cold grey land
and then you broke the mold

Forever dream of where we've been,
treading without fear.
You're my shining light,
you're my captain,
you take me everywhere

For something better, somewhere else
You'd go the miles
For something better, somewhere else
Rewards and trials
For something better, in the sun

to escape this prairie state
can't you see, I'm beat without you?
to escape this prairie state
I'll fly away

to escape this prairie state
can't you see, I'm beat without you?
to escape this prairie state
I'll fly away

For something better, somewhere else
You'd go the miles
For something better, somewhere else
Rewards and trials
For something better, in the sun
