Wayward Ways

I have wayward ways
One part of me could just leave today
One part of me thinks that I should stay
Want to travel the world someday
I have wayward ways
Sometimes I miss our nights
But adventure always fights
To take me from this place

The world has got me turning
The world has got me turning
To start a new, to start a new, to start a new.

The world has got me turning
The world has got me turning
To start a new, to start a new, to start a new.

I have wayward ways
Don’t make up my mind easily
I wish I could have it both ways
Go and stay without hesitancy

I have wayward ways
Sometimes I miss our nights
But adventure always fights
To take me from this place

The world has got me turning
The world has got me turning
To start a new, to start a new, to start a new.

The world has got me turning
The world has got me turning
To start a new, to start a new, to start…

Travel maps, comfort of my home
All mixed up, adventure, new life start
Travel maps, comfort of my home
All mixed up, adventure, new life start

The world has got me turning
The world has got me turning
To start a new, to start a new, to start a new.

The world has got me turning
The world has got me turning
To start a new, to start a new, to start a new.

Wayward ways
I have wayward days
How long before I leave?

This is my October 20th contribution to Poem A Day October. Since I like having a framework to mimic, I used this method [that I just made up]: pick an singer I know nothing about (Ryan Adams), pick one of their band names (Whiskeytown), find a song name on that page listing (16 Days), look up the lyrics and write something to the tune of that song (a song I have never before heard, to my knowledge). If someone wants to record this version of the song with the music from the original song, that’d be neat to hear.
