my momma calls me her dirty hippie
i guess that's what i am...
i tell her, momma i wanna see the world, she says exploring the world is
dangerous, but i say
i'm either gonna die here
or die out there
and i'd rather die knowing out there...
cuz i wanna see new faces
and love them
and i want to see new places
i want to see glaciers, deserts, oceans, rain forests...
so i will explore those places
and do what i can
to make sure that they're still here
for the souls that long for them after me...
i don't mind getting dirty
i'm going to make things
with my own two hands,
i'm gonna kiss lions, climb trees with monkeys, ride elephants, swim with sharks, sing with the wolves,
i'll dance with the rhythm of the earth,
hug trees for days
i guess i should tell her that no matter what,
my heart is in the mountains
they'll always be my home
