THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST

 

The Accidental Tourist never ventured from his shelter

He sought out only places he knew well where he could run and hide

He traveled far and wide but never let his mind

Escape familiar places kept inside protected deep inside

 

Never leave yourself wide open, never let your hair down

Never let the words be spoken, I love you

Donít admit you need another, go on crawl inside your books

Never riskiní what youíve grown use to

 

He traveled far and wide, but never let his mind

Escape familiar places kept inside, protected deep inside

He made a list and checked it twice, His ordered life was somethiní nice

How could he know, nothing would be the same, the day she came

 

Never leave yourself wide open, never let your hair down

Never let the words be spoken, I love you

Donít admit you need another, go on crawl inside your books

Never riskiní what youíve grown use to

 

Crazy ideas crazy notions, what is this strangely sweet emotion

Out of groove, yet eerily in tune once you give it room

No aimless slip through life unchanged his whole life now is rearranged

You can not be prepared for everything, some things remain unseen

 

Never leave yourself wide open, never let your hair down

Never let the words be spoken, I love you

Donít admit you need another, go on crawl inside your books

Never riskiní what youíve grown use to
