Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

the first couple of lines just dropped into my head! and it was a pretty easy write! i kept thinking people say im going nowhere and i was trying to work out then how you know when you are there and what it looks like ! my brain takes interesting tangents

Lyrics: 

I'm on the road to nowhere
tell me when im there
make it some place serene
although i idon't really care

had enough of this place nothing
there's nothing here for me
gotta be something better
no need for actuality

I wonder how nowhere looks
maybe sunny bright and free
or maybe black as night
like inside of me

I don't no the distance
or how long it may take
keep your foot on the accelerator
don't use the emergency brake

i know its over a few hills
and maybe a few more dales
gotta keep my mind straight
no heading off the rails

I wonder how nowhere looks
maybe sunny bright and free
or maybe black as night
like inside of me

well i become a nowhere man
.someone sang about him i think
try and get on his wave lenth
get him back in sync

are we there i ask again
a flash of light says beware
I look towards the front of the bus
see no driver in the chair

I wonder how nowhere looks
maybe sunny bright and free
or maybe black as night
like inside of me

Great song it reminds me of reading “On The Road”. Also has a bit of dreamy vibe that feels like your on a psychedelic journey. Enjoyed listening to this one.

This song had echoes of both nowhere man and the talking heads road to nowhere for me. It handled the comparison favorably. The cinematic arrangement is perfect for a travelling song. And the overall feeling is so, so lonely.

Very good, the strings are excellent very Beatles and ELO-esque. Good topic to write about it.

My new favorite of yours. LOVE the opening line "I'm on the road to nowhere, tell me when I'm there..."

PERFECT arrangement for this song. A really terrific job on this!

I love the idea of a bus to nowhere! Where can I get on? The track has an excellent George Harrison vibe, love the string arrangement. Good song!

Beautiful travelling song - I could hear the Waterboys doing it because they are influenced by his Bobness and the Beatles
