They say it takes leaving home to find it
And I can’t disagree
But just in case I need to be reminded
I try and tell my family
American’s a state of mind
I only find when I’m across the fence
But it hits hard when there’s no yard
To grill the chicken or the presidents

Take me across the water
One more time

There’s afternoons that I can’t stay here
Nights when I just couldn’t stand to leave
I love the sunshine, love the rain
But tell me, what about that autumn breeze?
And when I say I’m going home
Oh, I don’t know exactly what I mean
But I did what I came here for
It’s time I pack my things again and leave

Take me across the water
One more time

We say that we’ll keep in touch
But we both know what we won’t say is true:
I’ll go my way, you go yours
And in a year I’ll probably think of you
But those are ugly words
And they’re not fit for any kind of good goodbye
It’s easier to hug and say
“We’ll see each other on the other side.”

Take me across the water

Trask is currently at work on a full-length record with a projected 2019 release.
