You gave to me, once, a map of the world
I travelled its lines and its contours and folds
and the faded-ink place names and symbols and signs
and all from the depths of my mind

You gave to me, once, a map of the world
With billions of old untold stories and lives
In the lands that its drawings described in great depth
That I sat and enjoyed my mind

You gave to me, once, a map of the world
A world of great dangers and passions and joy
It only takes courage to step out the door
From the safe little world of my mind
