On The Loose

On the loose to climb a mountain
On the loose where I am free
On the loose to live my life the way
I think my life should be
For I only have a moment, and the whole world yet to see
I'll be looking for tomorrow on the loose

Have you ever seen a sunset, turn the sky completely red
Have you slept beneath the moon and stars, with a pine bough for your head?
Have you sat and talked with friends, though a word was never said?
Then you're like me and you've been on the loose


Theres a trail that I've been hiking, just to see where it might go
Many places yet to visit, many people yet to know
So in following my dreams, I will live and I will grow
On the trail that's waiting out there on the loose


So in search of love and laughter, I'll be traveling through this land
Never sure of where I'm going, for I haven't any plans
So in time when you are ready, come an join me, take my hand
And together we'll find life out on the loose


Alternate Verses:

Now the moon is softly glowing and the stars are twinkling bright
Our laughter and our friendship have cleared this cloudy night
Come and join our flickering campfire, come and sing our happy songs
And together we'll share life out on the loose.

Do the trees in the forest make you sit and think of love?
Does it take you twenty times or more to count the stars above?
For I'm here now and I like it and the hours melt away,
And if I want I'll stay here another day.
