Santa Fe (Menken Alan)

So that's what they call a family Mother, daughter, father, son Guess that everything you heard about is true So you ain't got any family Well who said you needed one? Ain't you glad nobody's waiting up for you? When I dream On my own I'm alone but I ain't lonely For a dreamer night's the only time of day When the city's finally sleeping All my thoughts begin to stray And I'm on the train That's bound for Santa Fe And I'm free Like the wind Like I'm gonna live forever It's a feeling time can never take away! All I need's a few more dollars And I'm outta here to stay Dreams come true Yes they do In Santa Fe Where does it say you gotta live and die here? Where does it say a guy can't catch a break? Why should you only take what you're given Why should you spend your whole life livin' Trapped where there ain't no future Even at seventeen Breaking your back for someone else's sake If the life don't seem to suit ya How about a change of scene? Far from the lousy headlines And the deadlines in between Santa Fe Are you there? Do you swear you won't forget me? If I found you would you let me Come and stay? I ain't getting any younger And before my dying day I want space Not just air Let 'em laugh in my face I don't care Save a place I'll be there So that's what they call a family Ain't you glad you ain't that way? Ain't you glad you got a dream called Santa Fe
