That's Where I Belong

Album: Freight Train (2010)

  • When the frantic pace of life attacks me
    And weighs me to the ground
    I long for someplace to escape
    To the one place I have found

    No stoplights to obey
    No signs or limits there
    Just drop the hook
    And make your home almost anywhere

    Where the sky meets the water
    Where the wind is my song
    Where the sun is my brother
    That's where I belong

    The gentle motion of the seas
    Just rocks me off to sleep
    No sirens, cars or screams
    Just quiet ocean breeze

    A frigate bird encircles me
    A 1000 feet above
    She dips her wing and bows her head
    Like we share a common love

    Where the sky meets the water
    Where the wind is my song
    Where the sun is my brother
    That's where I belong

    When the moonlight cracks the edge of night
    And stars are everywhere
    I can taste the rum and coke
    And I can smell that salty air

    A light spray across my bow
    Cools the evening sun
    As it slowly melts into the sea
    And tells me day is done

    Where the sky meets the water
    Where the wind is my song
    Where the sun is my brother
    That's where I belong

    When the common themes of life
    They come and overload my brain
    I steer my thoughts right to that place
    That takes me far away

    When the traffic fills that concrete path
    That takes me back and forth
    I usually sit and dream about
    That biggest piece of earth

    Where the sky meets the water
    Where the wind is my song
    Where the sun is my brother
    That's where I belong

    Where the sky meets the water
    Where the wind is my song
    Where the sun is my brother
    That's where I belong

    Yeah, that's where I belong
    Oh, that's where I belong Writer/s: ALAN JACKSON
