  • I've been thinking
    I've been thinking I've been thinking too much
    I just want to live now for a little while
    And cast my dreams to the wind

    Don't want to wonder
    Don't want to wonder what it's all about
    I'm just working for a living singing with my friends
    As I cast my dreams to the wind

    Maryland, I'm coming home
    Never worry about what I did wrong
    And that I'll never be what my daddy wanted me to be
    And I'll never see what my mama's dreams were

    But I will sing
    La la la la la la la la...
    I want to fly
    I want to fly down the highway to my home away from home

    This funky funky club on Fairfax Avenue to see you
    I'll never give up
    Because what is there to give up anyway
    I'm just working for a living working for my pay

    In Maryland it's raining somewhere in some cafe
    Maryland, I'm coming home
    Never worry about what I did wrong
    And that I'll never be what my daddy wanted me to be

    And I'll never see what my mama's dreams were
    But I can sing
    La la la la la la la la... Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
