  • I got this ticket in my hand
    And I got a long, long day ahead
    And I got a hell of a lot of reasons to be sad
    But I've got a hundred more that keep me coming back

    I got these worn out red boots on
    And I got a brand new favorite song
    And I can name some people who'd say that I got it all wrong
    But I know plenty more who've been there all along

    I'd rather make sandcastles
    Instead of these wide-world decisions
    Oh I knew, I knew it all was catching up to me

    And I don't have a plan at all
    But I got this six-string religion
    And I do, I do believe a song can heal me
    It's enough for me, yeah

    I had this picture in my head
    Of where I oughta be and when
    But it's just like the good advice that John gave when he said,
    "Life, it happens while we're busy making plans"

    I'd rather make sandcastles
    Instead of these wide-world decisions
    Oh I knew, I knew it all was catching up to me, yeah yeah

    And I don't have a plan at all
    But I got this six-string religion
    And I do, I do believe a song can heal me
    It's enough for me, yeah

    Where I'm laughing is where I'm home
    Oh, oh, but you know how fast it makes the time go, babe
    And there was nothing like the very first time that I saw open road
    And I wasn't terrified to ride it on my own

    Oh, I got my heart in the right place
    But that place is millions of miles away
    And I suppose I never will know the perfect words to say
    But I'll keep searching till they find me one fine day

    I'd rather make sandcastles
    Instead of these wide-world decisions
    Oh, I knew, I knew it all was catching up to me, hey

    And I don't have a plan at all
    But I got this six-string religion
    And I do, I do believe a song can heal me, oh oh
    It's enough for me, yeah

    Oh, oh it's enough for me, yeah
    It's enough for me Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
