Bear Attack's, "The Backpack Song"
Backpack on my back,
Walking down the river truck,
Oh I've been wanting to see you,
As upon the rows of trees and endless sea in front of me
I've been longing to see you.
You've been on my mind, talk about a lonely time.
You don't know how much I need you.
Once I feel the down is now, the only home I've ever known.
Backpack on my back, walking down a railroad track
Oh, I've been wanting to see you
Eyes upon the rows of trees, an endless sea in front of me
Oh, I've been longing to see you
You've been on my mind, talk about a lonely time
You don't know how much I need you
Once I feel the downy snow, the only home I've ever known
