Nick Garrie: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — February 20, 2022

362) Nick Garrie — “The Wanderer”

It’s been too long — so here’s another of Nick’s wonderful songs (see #3, 19, 41, 65, 104, 137, 245) — sorry Franz, this is my Wanderer Fantasy.

“Please set me free to roam in cities far away and to lose myself in lands I’ve never seen. Let me be the wanderer I know I have to be. Don’t want to stay here anymore and dream. It’s difficult to tell you and the words don’t fit my thoughts and my thoughts they don’t live anywhere. They roam and dream and wander. Wanderer. I’m going to the mountain lands across the northern seas. The winds are very cruel there they say. I’ll wander down the southern coasts to follow drifting clouds, and may the good sun guide me on my way. It’s difficult to tell you. And the words don’t fit my thoughts. And my thoughts they don’t live anywhere. They roam. And dream. And wander. The wanderer. I’ll scratch your name across blue tinted snow in winter lands. I’m summer’s warmth I’ll sing it to the sea. And soon I’ll lose its meaning and it’s sound will disappear. My wandering love will be completely free. Please set me free to roam in cities far away and to lose myself in lands I’ve never seen. Let me be the wanderer. I know I have to be. Don’t want to stay here anymore and dream. It’s difficult to tell you and the words don’t fit my thoughts. And my thoughts they don’t live anywhere. They roam. And dream. And wander. The wanderer. . . .”
