LYRICS:

JILL
I WAS ON THE TRAIN

MICHAEL
SHE WAS ON THE TRAIN.

BOTH
WE WERE ON THE SAME TRAIN.

JILL
I WAS WALKING.

MICHAEL
SHE WAS WALKING AND I BUMPED INTO HER.

JILL
I LOOKED UP.

BOTH
SHE LOOKED UP, AND I NOTICED SHE WAS HOLDING/I WAS HOLDING
“ONE THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE!”
“ONE THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE!”

JILL
AND HE OPENED UP HIS BACKPACK
RETRIEVED A WELLWORN COPY,

BOTH
AND I KNEW THAT DEEP INSIDE WE WERE THE SAME.

JILL
HE MET MY EYE,

MICHAEL
I MET HER EYE,

BOTH
AND I/HE SAID: “I’M ON AN ADVENTURE!”

MICHAEL
I DON’T KNOW WHERE I’M GOING,
BUT I KNOW ADVENTURES AREN’T IN GREAT SUPPLY.
YOU CAN CHOOSE WHICH WAY TO LIVE.
TODAY, I CHOOSE TO JOURNEY.

JILL
SO DO I.
SO DO I!

MICHAEL
SO WE STARTED OUT.

JILL
SO WE STARTED OUT.

BOTH
FLIPPING THROUGH THE GUIDE BOOK.

JILL
TO ALASKA!

MICHAEL
TO NEPAL!
IT NEVER MATTERED MUCH.

JILL
THERE ARE WORLDS,

MICHAEL
SO MANY WORLDS

BOTH
THAT WERE NEVER ON OUR RADAR
‘TIL “ONE THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE!”
“ONE THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE!”

JILL
FROM SINGAPORE TO SYDNEY,
MOROCCO TO MILAN,

BOTH
OH, THE THRILL OF CROSSING BOUND’RIES IS THE SAME
WHEN YOU’RE ON AN ADVENTURE!

MICHAEL
THIS BOOK SAYS ONLY THIRTY PERCENT OF AMERICANS
EVEN HAVE A PASSPORT AT ALL.

JILL
I DON’T WANNA BE LYING ON MY DEATHBED,
WISHING THAT I’D SEEN THE TAJ MAHAL!

BOTH
SHOW ME MOUNTAINS, IN BELIZE,
CAMEL RIDES AND BANYAN TREES,
A FESTIVAL IN CANNES OR KATMANDU.
I WANT A LIFETIME SEEING EV’RYTHING WITH YOU.

JILL
SO WE MADE A VOW.

MICHAEL
YES, WE MADE A VOW.

BOTH
HONEYMOON FOREVER.

JILL
EV’RY SUMMER

MICHAEL
EV’RY YEAR, ANOTHER TRIP AWAY.

JILL
IT’S A DREAM.

MICHAEL
IT’S A DREAM

BOTH
THAT WILL TAKE US THROUGH A LIFE TIME:
ONE THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE BEFORE WE DIE!
ONE THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE BEFORE WE DIE!
WE’RE ON AN ADVENTURE!
BUT AS LONG AS THERE IS SOMEPLACE NEW TO FLY,
WE WILL SPREAD OUR WINGS AND FIND NEW THINGS.
ALONG THE JOURNEY OF ONE THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE BEFORE WE DIE!
GOODBYE!
