~Alaska Couldn't Hold Me~
emerald green n turquoise blue 
dancin in the midnight sky
aurora your the only reason id consider 
going back  going back home

all the beauty that there is to see
oh it couldnt hold me
i had to go i had to roam and find myself
out in the world away from you
where the fireweed catches and takes over the green
mountains stretch for mile beyond the miles i can see
but all of that couldnt hold me 

i had to go away from home 
i had to find my own 
oh that big old world 
couldnt hold this girl

too cold  too dark and too many memories 
that hurt me so deep
had to run to hide had to dig down deep inside
and find who i was beyond the big mountain sides
the long summers and the forever nights of winter
oh my childhood home

made me wanna run 
made me wanna roam
made me wanna find out who i was 
beyond the expansive of&.

like glaciers deep and rivers wide 
oh i needed to swim out to the big ocean
and take on those big old tides
oh this home never felt like home to me
i was small and i wanted to see
if i could be bigger then i felt i was in alaska 
alaska couldnt hold me
