lyrics

It's time now to move on
Tired of singing the same old song
Eyes now open - I do see
The one holding me back was me

There are times you can get stuck
Up to ears in stinking muck
Time to climb out of the black hole
Find your heart - restore your soul

Go to the mountains - slip away
Or to a beach and sea spray

Free yourself from your busy mind
Illusions can make you blind
The voice inside you is so wise
To predators hiding in disguise

Escape the static surrounding you
Find yourself and renew
Life situations I do find
Sometimes become so unkind

Hurricane Ridge is a place to be
Alpine air will set you free
Hike through clouds in morning grey
Heaven will shine by midday.

Way up high on Mt. Rainier
Hike up to base Camp Muir
Playful marmots you will find
Blowing winds will clear your mind.


Go to the mountains - slip away
Or to a beach and sea spray
Water or heights for your escape
Spirit becomes one with landscape

From a cliff the view's a thrill
Scanning peaks while being still
Wind surrounds you and blows away
Pain and regrets from former days.

A true friend is hard to find
The trust you need takes some time
It is a gift I find is true
Escape together, we can do.

It's time now to move on
Tired of singing the same old song
Eyes now open - I do see
The one holding me back was me

Ruby Beach for a day of play
Tide pools, sea stacks make your day
Windblown trees have stories to tell
Inhale salt air and listen well.

Vashon Island by ferry ride
Best time to go is at low tide
Stroll along rocky shores
The voice inside you cries for more.
