Lyrics

Carry Me Nowhere

The last day of her childhood
She circled round the neighborhood
Her friends had long since journeyed on
But she pedaled hard and stayed behind - a little longer

The early days go quickly by
Turning with the years they fly
Till standing by tomorrow’s door
It beckons yet she lingers a little longer

(chorus)
Carry me nowhere
Mister Keeper of Time
Let me sail onward in this moment that’s mine (repeat)

With one foot out and one foot in
A young adulthood life begins
She plays it hard and plays to win
And finds her own way in the end – a little stronger

(Chorus)
So carry me nowhere
Mister Keeper of Time
Just let me sail onward in this moment that’s mine

Now sometimes on a summer’s day
She watches light and water play
And as the daylight slips away
The sun comes out and begs to stay
A little longer

So carry me nowhere
Mister Keeper of Time
Let me sail onward in this moment that’s mine
Carry me nowhere
Mister Keeper of Time
Let me sail onward in this moment that’s mine
Let me sail onward in this moment that’s mine
