One thing I take for granted Though there are more Thousands more Is that the whole wide world is out there To explore To explore These eyes aren't made of leather And these hands aren't made of wood I'm pretty sure these feet aren't made of stone And when we see these hearts of ours Aren't made for staying put There's no better time to go One thing I take for granted Every day Every day Is that I have the choice to stay here Or go And it's mine to make These eyes aren't made of leather And these hands aren't made of wood I'm pretty sure these feet aren't made of stone And when we see these hearts of ours Aren't made for staying put There's no better time to go One thing I take for granted Is being alive Being alive There's no better time to go There's no better time to go There's no better time to go Than now These eyes aren't made of leather And these hands aren't made of wood I'm pretty sure these feet aren't made of stone And when we see these hearts of ours Aren't made for staying put There's no better time to go

I'm letting go Radio Flyer Life's a blur Of red and brown You're in control Radio Flyer So find a hill We're going down It's somehow comforting When flying through the air To know the crash will come But not know when or where So watch the trees fly by Feel the ground approach Live with open eyes Let the distance close I'm letting go Radio Flyer Life's a blur Of red and brown You're in control Radio Flyer So find a hill We're going down We always hold so tight To the world we know Maybe we'll get it right If we let it go We always hold so tight To the world we know Maybe we'll get it right If we let it go Radio Flyer Life's a blur Of red and brown You're in control Radio Flyer So find a hill We're going down Find a hill We're going down

You don't see anyone you recognize You don't see anything that feels like home No, you're on your own And now the doubt sets in I thought you understood which way to go Are you only moving sideways? Oh, God only knows. Don't be frightened by the mystery. Now that you're here Did reality play out the way you thought it would be? Now that you're here Did the image you built up suddenly disappear? You live a way you never lived before You feel courageous but you feel exposed Oh, you're on your own And every momentary victory Is followed closely by a dark defeat Do you trust that you'll be rising Every time you fall down? Don't be frightened by the rise and fall. Now that you're here Did reality play out the way you thought it would be? Now that you're here Did the image you built up suddenly disappear? Now that you're here (Let go) Now that you're here (Let go) Now that you're here (Let go) There's no courage without fear (Let go) Now that you're here Did reality play out the way you thought it would be? Now that you're here Did the image you built up suddenly disappear? There's no courage without fear.

about

Rails to Trails was recorded in May 2009 at Zeke Studios in Madison, WI. Shortly after recording the audio, Andy moved to Houston, TX to join Teach For America. The audio files were rediscovered 10 years later, mixed, and finally released in May 2019.

The album explores the themes of anticipation, uncertainty, possibility, trust, fear, and excitement that accompanied this career change & relocation across the country.
