lyrics

Seven days ago I couldn't get myself to sleep,
my mind was rambling on so strong.
Seven days ago I couldn't wake up in the morning
I was too tired, to go on

Old man, won't you look at me
I am twenty-three and I'm still not feeling free
Old man, won't you look at my plans
am I running out of time?

But you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

No you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

Forty-seven years ago a young man in the canyons of topanga
living on his own
He left his home in Canada, took the car to California
and drove straight out into the unknown

Old man, won't you look at me
I am twenty-three and I'm still not feeling free
Old man, won't you look at my plans
am I running out of time?

But you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

No you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

Got to get back to the garden
Got to get out of our shell
I think we could learn from our parents
But we should take a good look at ourselves,
ourselves
