Far Away From This Place

Far, far away
There is somewhere
Where I’m free
Free of my ever impending worries
My heart beats a steady beat
Knowing I’m far, far away from all my pain
I have escaped to a place where people truly do care
and their mountains and mountains of love they share
Telling me it is all right to put my head down and cry about all my life’s troubles
My feelings I keep bottled up like an explosive volcano
Just waiting for a time when I can share and release all that pain that has built up like molten, red lava
I long for the time when I will go back to that place high in the Rocky Mountains
So once again I can cry and feel all the love that I feel there
