about

Written by a friend, Laurence Williams, who gave it to me as it wasn't rock enough for his band :-)

lyrics

Let's take a trip down Somerset Island,
Across the mainland to Hudson Bay.
We'll take a boat across the water down to Montreal.

Taking our time we'll cross the border
And be in New York for christmas day.
We'll meet the friends we made in Philadelphia
in Florida sometime in May.

I'd escape across the sea,
If you would come with me to Montreal.
I would run away
If I thought it possible at all.

Let's take a boat from Norway
And sail north across the Barents Sea
We'll spend some time in Anderma
And take a train across Russia.

I would gather sweat and dust,
If that is what I must do to get away.
I wouldn't care about the news,
Lets wear out all our shoes in vain.

Let's drink tea in China,
Let's drink coffee by the Arabian Sea,
Let's go walking in the water
But only up to our knees.

So I'm sitting in my room, pencil in my hand,
Drawing lines on the wall, on my map of the world.
I couldn't be in Rio by tomorrow
Even though its an inch from my nose.

Looks like it's Brighton or Moorgate for us.
Call in sick on tuesday and take the bus.
I'd be happy walking on the beach alone,
You've got money and could fly to Rome.

I would sail across the sea
If you would come with me to Montreal.
I would run away if I thought it possible at all.
