1. Rudimental – Free ft. Emeli Sandé

I don’t do yoga, never tried Pilates

Not many people want me at their parties

Tryna find my place, some place, oh I, oh I, oh I

I drink a little than recommended

This world ain’t exactly what my heart expected

Tryna find my way someway, oh I, oh I, oh I

2. B.o.B – Airplanes (feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore)

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?

I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

3. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Around the World

All around the world
We could make timerompin’ and a stompin’
‘Cause I’m in my prime

Born in the north and sworn to entertain ya
‘Cause I’m down for the state of Pennsylvania

I try not to whineut I must warn ya
‘Bout the girls from California

Alabama baby said hallelujah
Good god girl I wish I knew ya

4. Lenny Kravitz – Fly Away

I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly

I’d fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please

Oh I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

5. Shakira – Gypsy

Broke my heart
On the road
Spent the weekend
Sewing the pieces back on

Friends and thoughts pass me by
Walking gets too boring
When you learn how to fly

Not the homecoming kind
Take the top off
And who knows what you might find

6. John Denver – Leaving on a Jet Plane

All my bags are packed
I’m ready to go
I’m standin’ here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin’
It’s early morn
The taxi’s waitin’
He’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome
I could die

7. Metallica – Wherever I May Roam

And the road becomes my bride
And the road becomes my bride
I have stripped of all but pride
So in her I do confide
And she keeps me satisfied
Gives me all I need
And with dust in throat I crave
Only knowledge will I save
To the game you stay a slave

8. Down Under – Men At Work

Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said

Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover

9. John Denver – Take Me Home Country Roads 

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gather ’round her
Miner’s lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

10. Norah Jones, Come away with me

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song

Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can’t tempt us, with their lies

And I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won’t you try to come

11. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Road Trippin’ 

Road trippin’ with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It’s time to leave this town it’s time to steal away
Let’s go get lost anywhere in the U.S.A.

Let’s go get lost, let’s go get lost

Blue you sit so pretty West of the one
Sparkles light with yellow icing, just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

12. Jack Johnson – Upside Down

Who’s to say
What’s impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread it’s wings
There’s no stopping curiosity

13. Michael Bublé – Home

Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home, mmm

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
Just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters
That I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
I’m fine baby, how are you?

14. Dido – Life for Rent

I haven’t ever really found a place that I call home
I never stick around quite long enough to make it
I apologize that once again I’m not in love
But it’s not as if I mind that your heart ain’t exactly breaking
It’s just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
’cause nothing I have is truly mine

15. Alexi Murdoch – The Ragged Sea

I see the lights of the city
I see them rising up
They’re moving in the dark
A fire without a spark

And the mornings moving first
The morning’s moving first
God is coming on

Somewhere on the mountain around the ragged sea
Where time is lying still
I’m falling up the hill
And the sky is pouring in
Sky is pouring in
Sky is pouring in

16. Enya – Book Of Days

One day, one night, one moment,
My dreams could be, tomorrow.
One step, one fall, one falter,
East or west, over earth or by ocean.
One way to be my journey,
This way could be my Book of Days.

Ó lá go lá, mo thuras,
An bealach fada romham.
Ó oíche go hoíche, mo thuras,
Na scéalta nach mbeidh a choích.

17. Colin Hay – Beautiful World

My my my, It’s a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Where a man can still be free,
Or a woman if you are one
I like swimming in the sea

My my my, It’s a beautiful world
I like drinking Irish Tea
With a little bit of lap sang souchong
I like making my own Tea
