Thumbing My Way

When this song first came out I thought rather little of it.. but I just heard it again a few minutes ago, and have decided it is amazing.

Pearl Jam – Thumbing My Way

i have not been home since you left long ago  i'm thumbing my way back to heaven  counting steps, walking backwards on the road  i'm counting my way back to heaven  i can't be free with what's locked inside of me  if there was a key, you took it in your hand  there's no wrong or right, but i'm sure there's good and bad  the questions linger overhead  no matter how cold the winter, there's a springtime ahead  i'm thumbing my way back to heaven  i wish that i could hold you  i wish that i had  thinking 'bout heaven  i let go of a rope, thinking that's what held me back  and in time i've realized, it's now wrapped around my neck  i can't see what's next, from this lonely overpass  hang my head and count my steps, as another car goes past  all the rusted signs we ignore throughout our lives  choosing the shiny ones instead  i turned my back, now there's no turning back  no matter how cold the winter, there's a springtime ahead  i smile, but who am i kidding?  i'm just walking the miles, every once in a while i'll get a ride  i'm thumbing my way back to heaven  thumbing my way back to heaven  i'm thumbing my way back to heaven...
