My father was a sailor
My mother a saint
He sailed the oceans
She waited with grace
But every time I was lost He found me in the same place

Where all the signs say “you are here”
You’re never quite there
The signs say you are here still
You’re right where you stand

I was lost underground
Waiting for trains
Didn’t speak the language
They all look the same
And the maps on the wall Were colorful scrawl, a maze

And all the signs say “you are here”
You’re never quite there
The signs say you are here still
You’re right where you stand

I was once in a band
Filling my space
With David at rein
And Shawn untamed
And the songs that we made Were powerful waves of change

But all the signs say “you are here”
You’re never quite there
The signs say you are here still
You’re right where you stand
