  • Where are you going, with the long face pullin' down
    Don't hide away like an ocean
    But you can't hear what you can swear
    That the sun sound of waves crash down...

    I am no Superman
    I have no answers for you
    I am no hero aww that's for sure
    But I do know one thing
    It's where you are is where I belong
    I do know where you go that's where I want to be
    Where are you going?

    Where do you go, are you looking for answers to questions under the stars?
    If along the way you are growing weary
    You can rest with me until the brighter day and you're OK

    (Hook Repeat)

    Where are you going?
    Where do you go?


    Where do you go?
    Where are you going?
    Where do you go?

    (Hook Repeat)

  • Frank from Cambridge, MaI hear it as the singer is trying comfort his troubled lover who is retreating into a inner world he can't see and tries to understand. Perhaps the suggestion is that, we all experience this inherent lonliness of our subjective world. He's trying to see into this world, but can only get so close, which is part of the human condition. None of us are supermen. Perhaps the positive message of caring, loyalty and just being there for someone for reasons that can't be expressed is even more important in some way.
  • Matt from Chicago, IlOn Storyteller, Dave talks about how the meaning of this song could have changed, if you linked it to 9/11. He said music is like art, once you show it off... everyone owns it, and can interpurit for themselves.
  • Joshua from Cincinnati, Ohthis song is about following the one that you love
