Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind

People stopping, staring
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Through the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes
Banking off of the North East winds
Sailing on a summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone

(Wooh-Wooh)

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Through the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes
Banking off of the North East winds
Sailing on a summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone

Everybody's talking at me
Can't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind

I won't let you leave my love behind
No I won't let you leave

I won't let you leave my love behind

    A dissatisfied 9 to 5 man who carries his favorite place in his heart. So that he can mentally retreat there when he feels life's stresses. James Taylor goes to Carolina in his mind this guy goes to where the sun keeps shining me I like Venice but you know whatever it takes good for him.

    Isolation. He's reached the end of his rope. He's become a black sheep, and now he must go. Someplace else where maybe he'll be more accepted for who he is. Such a beautiful song, and sad. That's how I see it at least.

    I'm in this strange town where everyone is looking at me funny and saying things i don't understand. Think i'll go back home where i'm the happiest
