Fountain

I am not like those before me
Standing in a suit
Now I face what stands before me
And I'm singing and I'm searching
Singing and I'm searching for myself

Once a man had two things that he cherished
Certain about his job and about his wife
Seems to me he must be doing drugs
'Cause nothing's ever certain
Nothing's ever certain in this life

Once I came across a fountain
Made three wishes -- touched a dream
Like a thought turning me over
Inspiration's spinning me around and around
And I wonder if I'm tripping on my words

And if I'm stumbling on my goals
Around and around and around I go

So many things I stand to gain
So many things that I have known I stand to lose

Maybe it's for me to determine
Maybe I am like a book on a shelf
Read me once and tell me how I am
Because I am singing and I'm searching for myself

You can ask me "What is it you're saying?
Who are you and what you trying to be?"
I'd like to be a cowboy in the movies
Smiling at the people
Smiling at the people that I see

Singing for myself
I'm singing and I'm searching for myself...

So many things I stand to gain
So many things that I have known I stand to lose
So many things...
