He always said it fit perfectly.

Dear Justin, I know it’s been a long time…
Remember all those nights we spent sitting up talking in your front room,
about leaving this worn out world and starting again far away in a better place?
Well that’s where I am now – but still thinking about you…

I’m never going back there –
I’m never going back to the bad old world.

I was traveling with Laurel way up on the north coast,
She’s got family living up here in a nearby town;
We found a piece of land that looks out towards
the North Sea islands across the bay,
And the sun is shining on the water today as I look out of our front door.

Are you still scared of the future? Well, that doesn’t surprise me;
You could come up and stay here a while, back off from the killing wheel.
I used to think it was me who’d somehow sold out
or given in on some almighty cause,
But what difference would it make? It feels good to be out here.

I’m never going back there –
I’m never going back to the bad old world.

    I'm envious…I want to get away.
    There's no where left that I can go.
