“I’ll never rest till I’ve seen all I can see!”

April 3 2009.

Hey everyone, I was really inspired to post this song/lyrics up today!

I first heard the song by Brendan James, back in August on So You Think You Can Dance (Lol!) It was played in Mark Kanemura’s goodbye video and it’s called “All I Can See.” It just randomly started playing on my iTunes today via the shuffle function, and I paused and thought, “HEY, this is perfect!!!”

Here’s the song:

Here are the lyrics:

I want to walk through this doorway
I want to open my mind
I want to pledge my allegiance to all I can find.
I want a car that will crash through the barriers
to a road no one knows.
I want to feel less control,
want to bend and I want to land far from home.

The revolution of the earth around the sun
is the perfect lesson of how it should be.
So if i cannot learn
to journey and return,
to never rest till I’ve seen all I can see…

I want to learn a completely new language,
one I don’t understand.
I want to help someone lost, someone helpless,
with the strength of my hand.
I want to come to the base of a statue built
before they counted the years,
and there i’ll fall with my face in my hands and cry
and feel their hope in my tears.

The revolution of the earth around the sun
is the perfect lesson of how it should be.
So if I cannot learn,
to journey and return,
to never rest till I’ve seen all I can see…

Train rides and pastures colliding…
colors and customs i’ve never seen…
I know I, yes I know I,
I know I will stumble
but time is precious my friend.

Those who journey can easily understand,
the more they see the more they’ll learn,
the more that they will be.
So this I swear to you, and this I swear to me,
I’ll never rest till I’ve seen all I can see.
No, I’ll never rest till I’ve seen all i can see.

I want to know where the stength of a person lies,
in their past or their future.
Is it in the way that they hurt or they love themselves
or is it all an illusion?
I want to crawl from this skin that i’m painted in…
Body, please let it give.
I want to find the creator of all good things
and ask what it means to live.

Here’s Mark’s elimination ( :( ) and goodbye video that the song was used in :

Opportunities, opportunities! :) I’ve tentatively planned out how I want my summer to go now that Oz is out of the picture and I must say it’s looking good! Half industry/career-related, half traveling and adding to that list of things, places, and experiences that I won’t “rest till I’ve seen all I can see” of! :D

Once I get things finalized I’ll post my summer plans. :)
