lyrics

i left home that morning to walk these crooked miles
made a home in the wind, returning strangers' smiles
in the morning check your mailbox, take a walk outside
don't write as much as i hoped to, it felt good to pass the time
it felt good to pass the time.

mother, i am there
wherever i will be
the wind took me from you
so you'll have to wait and see.
mother, i am there
when your window's opened up
i may not be beside you now
it'll have to be enough
i am there.

i was feeling nameless, these boots still on my feet
the summer left me aimless, spinning circles in the street
but brother i will call your name out by the railroad tracks
the sound bouncing at me now, is that you howling back?
is that you howling back?

brother, i am there
wherever i will be
the wind took me from you
so you'll have to wait and see.
brother, i am there
at the bars and at the lake
the dream doesn't die
no, we all just come awake.
i am there.

all we kept inside us, and all we left behind
all the rolling engines still turning in our minds.
i will be there with you when our grayest day goes black
the sound bouncing at you now, it's just me howling back.
it's just me howling back.

mother, i am there
wherever i will be
the wind took me from you
so you'll have to wait and see
mother, i am there
when your window's opened up
i may not be beside you now
it'll have to be enough
i am there.
