Somewhere On A Road In Idaho

Okay but you guys, this song. This song.
I overheard it on a podcast the otherday as a background song and it just stopped me right in my tracks.
Sometimes there are just little pieces of things that get thrown out into your world that feel like they were meant just for you. This was one of those things for me. I listened to it about six times in a row. Ugh. It's just perfect.
Go have a listen to it for yourself.
Or read the lyrics below.
Or both. 
Maybe it'll speak to you as well.


Endless Road

By Angel Olson

Well, every road I see leads away from me
There's not a single one that leads me home
All the roads keep saying, "Friend, come see what's 'round the bend"
So is it any wonder that I roam
All the places I have been keep a-callin' me back again 

Down in the pines I hear the cold wind blow
My heart keeps tellin' me, footloose and fancy free
But the road goes by and calls me as it goes  
Well, maybe somewhere there's a someone waitin' there with a smile 

And maybe there'll be someplace I can stop and rest a while
'Cause maybe you weren't meant to be just a rollin' stone
And there's a road to travel on that leads you back to home
Oh, but I'll keep travelin' on, keep a-lookin' at the dawn
Till I can lay this lonesome body down
And when that day has come, I never more will roam
And every road I see will lead me home
And when that day has come, I never more will roam
And every road I see will lead me home
