Sitting here at the crossroads pining That's the place that you're gonna find me Right here where you left me on my own To find the road that takes me home Everybody gets to sow a few wild oats Well I never sowed none And I'll be damned if the thought doesn't haunt me That I should have had more fun One can never know It's like I held the pearl, let it slip through my fingers Like it was worthless And I know I can never go back now 'Cause I did it on purpose But I'm missing home You'll see that I'm messed up with you You're my best answer to the question, still unknown Which road takes me home People wonder why it's always a sad song Well, you write what you know I guess But there's nothing worse than a prince in a castle Who's always chronically depressed Putting on a show I'm the one, I'm the guy you should talk to I'm like my own little dream museum I've got ideas and they're gonna change everything Just wait 'til you see them I'll be doing them tomorrow You'll see that I'm messed up with you You're my best answer to the question, still unknown Which road takes me home
Where are you in regard to me? A random dance? Or a journey? I once was blind but now I see Not more than this step I'm taking Standing on the outside your face pressed up against the glass Can't begin, afraid of jumping into what's moving way too fast Learn to love the thing that's given now and not hold the thing that's past It's the only way to learn the dance Whether wishes, dreams, or stargazing, or messages you can decode Where evidence and knowledge fail the step of faith's the surest road Find the rhyme and let it guide you to the place you cannot know It's the only way to reach the goal
The howling to the moon is all I need Walk along the splinters of starlight that bleed Following the wanderer's code All I need is one for the road All the stories that I heard All the stories that they told We leave by the luck that we roll We will leave by your word We will die in the mould While the crack in the sky makes us old The life that I left is far behind Believing I would find some peace of mind No strings attached no contract signed Just a place for me to unwind

The Janzen Boys Winnipeg, Manitoba

Father-and-sons trio, John, Simon, and Mick got their start busking at the Forks. Now those street-music beginnings have translated into contest wins and festival gigs around Manitoba. Come for the folksy three-part harmonies... stay for the 10-year-old rocking out on a mandolin. ... more
