Utah, Cuba, Italy, and Newfoundland may seem so different from one another, but to Lucas Fischer they all share something: they are all hard to leave.
 
When I was in Utah
Driving down the road
Mesas in the distance, I felt so free
Completely detached
From all I was used to, I want to go back
 
When I was in Cuba
The buildings, the cars
Felt like visting a time capsule
An island from the 50s
How I miss that place
 
I want to be everywhere I want to be
‘Cause I don’t want to be missing changes
When I go to other places, when I leave
I feel so sad, ‘cause I may not come back
 
Visiting Venezia
Surrounded by sea
Gondolas floating down the canal
Venice is sinking
Narrow arches, narrow streets
 
Driving in Newfoundland, so remote
Land and water, hardly a tree
A sign says, “Watch out
For rocks carried by the breeze.”
 
I want to be everywhere I want to be
‘Cause I don’t want to be missing changes
When I go to other places, when I leave
I feel so sad, ‘cause I may not come back
 
If I could be in a different place
In a different place every day
It would be normal to me
I want to go back and take photographs
Mental photographs of things I see
Everywhere I want to be
 
I want to be everywhere I want to be
‘Cause I don’t want to be missing changes
When I go to other places, when I leave
I feel so sad, ‘cause I may not come back
