  • Just like a broken marriage, when two people just don't care
    Like when the cupboard is empty or there's no food in the Frigidaire
    I'm a page from the end of the story
    No closer to my hope and glory
    Just a kick away from the heels of the wind

    How come it gets so disturbing when two ships pass in the storm?
    Who knows how high the crow flies, who knows where this refugee was born?
    I'm a page from the end of the story
    No closer to my hope and glory
    Just a kick away from the heels of the wind

    And just for the sake of all these reasons
    Rains wash out the fires within
    Fires that help to keep you moving
    Just a kick away from the heels of the wind

    You don't deserve that treatment; I can't pretend I was that nice
    I'm no E-ticket ride to Disneyland, I'm no cushy first class flight
    I'm a day behind your restless wings
    You - you'd rather have the wealth of kings
    Me - I'd rather be on the heels of the wind
