Something In Me

She dusted off her dreams and packed her suitcase
She was meant for something more
Small town life no longer felt quite right
She heard the call of distant shores
Her old part-time job was now full-time
Dad said in no time she'd own the family store
In her pocket was a ticket for a Greyhound
And a note she'd leave on her folks' door
It said,

Let me explain why I'm at loose ends
It's nothing you did, nothing you said
But in all of my dreams
There's something I'm trying to reach
I once thought it was something in you
But it's something in me

While trying to find herself in the city
She found a man who she adored
He helped her make the tough choices
That come along with opening doors
But she still felt the hunger
That had been with her all of her years
She took the road to follow her heart
Holding back her tears
She said,

Let me explain why I'm at loose ends
It's nothing you did, nothing you said
But in all of my dreams
There's something I'm trying to reach
I once thought it was something in you
But it's something in me

She said, I just can't take the backseat
To the dreams that I've held dear
I see the woman I've always wanted to be
Just starting to appear, please

Let me explain why I'm at loose ends
It's nothing you did, nothing you said
But in all of my dreams
There's something I'm trying to reach
I once thought it was something in you
But it's something in me

And I must be true to that something in me
It's nothing you did, nothing you said
Just something in me that keeps reaching ahead
It's something in me
