Rest of lyrics:
I move on to another day
To a whole new town with a whole new way
Went to the porch to have a thought
Got to the door and then I couldn't stop

You don't know where and you don't know when
But you still got your words and you got your friends
Walk along to another day
Work a little harder work another way

Well, uh uh baby I ain't got no plan
Well float on maybe would you understand
Gonna float on maybe would you understand
Well I float on maybe would you understand
(One chord cycle interlude)
The days get shorter and the nights get cold
I like the autumn but this place is getting old
I pack up my belongings and I head for the coast
It might not be alot but I feel like I'm making the most

The days get longer and the nights smell green
I guess it's not suprising but it's spring and I should leave
(play Riff 1)

I like songs about drifters, books about the same
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane
Walked on off to another spot
I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want

Did I want love did I need to know
Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an unndertow
(finish last half this cycle, start next cycle and then play Riff 1)

The moths beat themselves to death against the lights
Adding their breeze to the summer nights
Outside water like air was great
I didn't know what I had that day

Walk a little farther to another plan
You said that you did but you didn't understand
(play Riff 1)

I know that starting over is not what life's about
But my thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth
My thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth
My thoughts were so loud
(Play 3 cycles of guitar and then finish with playing Riff 1 and variations of Riff 1 a 
times)
