Anywhere Is

Anywhere Is

The maze in this picture is obviously drawn because the first line is “I walk the maze of moments.” There are lots of “beginnings” (like “Everywhere I turn to begins a new beginning”). There is some sea imagery because of the ocean lyrics in this song. There are stars outside the maze, drawn because of the line “I wonder if the stars sign the life that is to be mine, and would they let their light shine enough for me to follow.” However, the song goes on to say that the stars do not offer any guidance and therefore it’s easy to get lost in the maze, and there’s no way to know whether this is the beginning of the maze or the end. The footsteps start at a place that could be interpreted as near an end or near a beginning, just like the song says. There is a picture of the constellation of Orion in there (mentioned in the song) but you can’t see it if you’re inside the maze. There are hearts in the maze, which symbolize places where the wanderer could conceivably “find another” as the song says. I’ve put several hearts there because I don’t think there’s just one person for every wanderer. The green dots are also spots of vitality that everyone finds while wandering in the maze of life.

Anywhere Is–lyrics

I walk the maze of moments
But everywhere I turn to
Begins a new beginning
But never finds a finish
I walk to the horizon
And there I find another
It all seems so surprising
And then I find that I know
You go there you’re gone forever
I go there I’ll lose my way
If we stay here we’re not together
Anywhere is
The moon upon the ocean
Is swept around in motion
But without ever knowing
The reason for its flowing
In motion on the ocean
The moon still keeps on moving
The waves still keep on waving
And I still keep on going
I wonder if the stars sign
The life that is to be mine
And would they let their light shine
Enough for me to follow
I look up to the heavens
But night has clouded over
No spark of constellation
No Vela no Orion
The shells upon the warm sands
Have taken from their own lands
The echo of their story
But all I hear are low sounds
As pillow words are weaving
And willow waves are leaving
But should I be believing
That I am only dreaming
To leave the thread of all time
And let it make a dark line
In hopes that I can still find
The way back to the moment
I took the turn and turned to
Begin a new beginning
Still looking for the answer
I cannot find the finish
It’s either this or that way
It’s one way or the other
It should be one direction
It could be on reflection
The turn I have just taken
The turn that I was making
I might be just beginning
I might be near the end.
