Lyrics

I always sing when I travel
I always sing when I kill time
I always talk to people I can see
Yeah I always take every opportunity

So tell yourself you're a strong man
Yeah tell yourself you won't be fooled again

In paradise we'll have fun
Yeah you throw the rice
I'll watch the dirty waters run
Yeah I always sing when I give the whole game away
I always sing just before I go away

So tell yourself you're a strong man
Yeah tell yourself you won't be fooled again
We'll do some tricks
You'll never joke again

So find yourself a sweet songbird
And she'll sing you to sleep
And her beauty is such a joke
Like the promises you keep
So you take a train and you take a plane
And you become one million things
And you lose everything so fast
Despite everything I say
I always sing when I'm traveling
I always sing when I'm killing time

When winter hits
When she's outside crying
When questions come
I always sing
I always sing
