Knopfler, Mark - Wherever I Go Lyrics




Maybe I’m bound to wander
From one place to the next
Heaven knows why
But in the wild blue yonder
Your star is fixed in my sky

Just another bar at a crossroads
So far from home
But that’s alright
Whenever I’m going down a dark road
I don’t feel alone in the night

There’s a place in my heart
Though we’re far apart
May you always know
No matter how long since I saw you
I’ll keep a flame there for you
Wherever I go

They’re looking to close up in here
They’re pulling down the blinds
But they’ll let you stay awhile
They’re not going to mind

Now I’ve got to leave you, brother
So this round’s mine
Here’s looking at you, anyhow
You can go on and have another
They won’t call time
I’m going to say my goodbyes now

There’s a place in my heart
Though we’re far apart
May you always know
No matter how long since I saw you
I’ll keep a flame there for you
Wherever I go

Knopfler, Mark Wherever I Go Comments
  1. maria aparecida

    Linda música! Parabéns!🌷🌹🌻🌼⚘😘

  2. Mark Singleton

    My sister (uk based) sent me this after coming out to Australia for my 50th birthday ... love it

  3. jean luc Vachon

    Never been disappointed by Mark K. a very nice song..

  4. othman othman

    Amazing Legend Mark Knopfler, the video is top shoot and is so meaningful..
    Greetings from Yemen

  5. Nick Zivanovich

    This man is a literary genius and should rightfully receive the Noble Prize for it despite how phony (like Dylan knew) the whole thing was. He's simply sensational and I'm grateful to have this music everyday in my life. Thank you, MK.

  6. Кирилл Вадимович2

    Спасибо.

  7. bobzthecat

    Love it. Takes me back to my first love x

  8. Dawin

    I think if I ever meet Mark Knopfler in person. All I'll be capable to is to gently approach and kiss his hands and then leave.

  9. Marcelo Barros Composições

    Mark Knopfler sabe como tocar nossas almas, com poucas notas e com a velocidade que a música pede que sua guitarra fale!

  10. Jane Dawson

    ❤️❤️❤️

  11. JoJo Norris

    Another masterpiece 🤗

  12. Vasco Cabral

    Half a million views? Change the name Mark Knopfler to Nicki Minaj and you'll have 40M view...boom! Just like that.

  13. Mark Wills

    I often wonder if this is Mark Knopfler's reach out to his brother, David. They haven't been on speaking terms for many years. I know David is very sad about it, because I've spoken to him about it privately. The issue, very sadly, remains with Mark. It's never too late, Mark.

  14. Gregory Lull

    The beauty of this song tears at my heart. I cannot listen to it without welling up. Just so sweet, so meaningful. God bless you Mark Knopfler for bringing forth these sounds and words.

  15. PETRA CORAZÒN

    Das ist mein absoluter Lieblingssong. The song , I like most... ..Forever and always

  16. Pitas Alexandru

    This just melts my heart

  17. Fernanda Moreira

    Onde Quer Que Eu Vá (part. Ruth Moody)
    Talvez eu esteja preso a vagar
    De um lugar para o outro
    O céu sabe o porquê
    Mas na selvagem imensidão azul
    Sua estrela está fixa no meu céu

    Apenas um outro bar em uma encruzilhada
    Tão longe de casa
    Mas está tudo bem
    Sempre que eu estou descendo uma rua escura
    Eu não me sinto sozinha no meio da noite

    Tem um lugar no meu coração
    Mesmo que estejamos distantes
    Que você sempre saiba
    Não importa quanto tempo desde que te vi
    Eu vou manter uma chama lá para você
    Onde quer que eu vá

    Eles estão olhando para fechar-se aqui
    Eles estão puxando para baixo as persianas
    Mas eles vão deixá-la ficar um tempo
    Eles não vão se importar

    Agora eu tenho que deixá-lo, irmão
    Então essa rodada é por minha conta
    Aqui está olhando para você, de qualquer maneira

    Você ir e tomar mais uma
    Eles não vão chamar tempo
    Vou me dizer meu adeus agora.

  18. Gary Hunter

    MK is the Master of the Universe....period!!

  19. Will Smith

    Only a genius can write & perform to perfection!

  20. Richa Jain

    Simply classy😊

  21. Ceica Viorel

    Supeeeeeeeerb.............................................!!!

  22. Кирилл малыкин

    Моего сына (приёмного) зовут марк фейвер. Я всегда ему говорю:будь достоин своего имени! Он учится скрипке, как все ,правильные еврейские мальчики. И всегда говорю,что мой любимый гитарист-Музыкант- Mark Knopfler!

  23. Rick Nelson

    I’m a big tough guy and let only a select few really know the inner me and the one who knew me best left over 30 years ago, I still keep the “flame” and always will. I love you Kathy P.

  24. 신연호

    Maybe I'm bound to wander
    아마 난 떠돌아 다녀야 하나 봐
    From one place to the next
    한 곳에서 다른 곳으로
    Heaven knows why
    하늘이나 그 이유를 알지

    But in the wild blue yonder
    하지만 저 험한 창공에
    Your star is fixed in my sky
    너의 별이 내 하늘에 박혀 있어

    Just another bar at a crossroads
    교차로에 있는 그저 또 다른 술집
    So far from home
    집에서 멀리 떨어져 있는
    But that's alright
    하지만 괜찮아

    Whenever I'm going down a dark road
    어두운 길을 걸어 내려갈 때마다
    I don't feel alone in the night
    난 밤에 혼자라고 느끼지 않아

    There's a place in my heart
    내 맘 속에 한 장소가 있지
    Though we're far apart
    비록 우리가 멀리 떨어져 있어도
    May you always know
    네가 항상 알기를 바랄게
    No matter how long since I saw you
    내가 널 본지 얼마나 오래 되었든
    I'll keep a flame there for you
    난 거기에 널 위한 불꽃을 갖고 있을 거야
    Wherever I go
    내가 어디로 가건

    They're looking to close up in here
    그들은 여기에서 문을 닫으려고 보고 있지
    They're pulling down the blinds
    그들은 블라인드를 내리고 있지
    But they'll let you stay awhile
    하지만 그들은 너를 잠시 머물게 할 거야
    They're not going to mind
    그들은 신경쓰지 않을 거야

    Now I've got to leave you, brother
    이제 나는 너를 떠나야 해, 형제
    So this round's mine
    그러니 이 술은 내가 낼게
    Here's looking at you, anyhow
    어쨌든 여기서 너를 보고 있어
    You can go on and have another
    넌 계속 할 수 있고 또 한잔 할 수 있지
    They won't call time
    그들은 끝날 시간이라고 말하지 않을 거야
    I'm going to say my goodbyes now
    난 이제 안녕을 말해야 할 거야

    There's a place in my heart
    내 맘 속에 한 장소가 있지
    Though we're far apart
    비록 우리가 멀리 떨어져 있어도
    May you always know
    네가 항상 알기를 바랄게
    No matter how long since I saw you
    내가 널 본지 얼마나 오래 되었든
    I'll keep a flame there for you
    난 거기에 널 위한 불꽃을 갖고 있을 거야
    Wherever I go
    내가 어디로 가건

  25. zigg

    where is the new MK it would come out in march is mark done making albums what is going on no tours no albums nothing im so sad it is time to go back where it al started mark !!!

  26. GERP RIBEIRO

    Beautiful song! Wherever you go... and wherever you listen to it, it's a beautiful song!

  27. plop888

    This song always makes me cry. It reminds me of someone I miss very much.

    TimMer1981

    You'll meet again; in this life or after. :)

  28. Keith Hendrickson

    Like so many other beautifully crafted and emotional songs, it was shattered by a shit video. Blaaah is all I can say at about it.

    TimMer1981

    Shit video? You didn't get much of the story of the clip, did you?

    Seems fairly obvious to me it's about someone who's very depressed, been beaten raw by life, and decides to end it, telling his friends and family he'll still be around and thinking of them, just in another way.

  29. Imtiaz Khan

    it's been really awesome to listen....
    such an amazing song heard after a long time
    thnx a lot to Mr. Mark Knopfler to make this song, to sing this song and more importantly to give me such pleasure by creating this wonderful song......i'm truly falling love with this song

  30. Krzys

    Ruth and Mark thanks for this song and clip. Amazing

  31. Inflamed Toe Juice In Harlem

    Knopfler= the master of putting the right notes in the right spot

  32. Jim's videos

    I hope they tour together again.

  33. Tulasidass Subramaniam

    Simply wonderful. Exquisite guitar, soulfully written. Mark Nnopfler magnifica, Amazing, Brilliant. He's the best, genius and the best composers ever. Mark your songs touches the Soul and reminds me my youth days.

  34. Tom Jack Kerouac

    Sublime treatment of being alone in love alone

  35. ionica elena

    native talent ... unreal good ... for almost 40 years ...
    everything to the superlative ... and the composition ... and the voice ... ooau

  36. Aseem Reason

    It really pisses me off that this person has only 10k subscribers.

  37. Kevin Wilson

    Thank you Mark.

  38. Kaydee Ole

    It reminds me of Kate Bush & Peter Gabriel's harmony. Beautiful!

  39. mehrdad mehrdad

    fantastic music video and song

  40. Harry Casper

    The train tracks and the wooden ties---what's left of them---at the end of this video remind me of New Jersey Transit.

  41. Nick Loughrey

    Perfect!!! Mark ..I gave up the guitar in the late 70s when I heard you doing Sultans .You and Ruth have that magical combination of voices !!

  42. Enrique Aldanondo

    " Donde quiera que vaya "

    [Mark:]
    Tal vez estoy obligado a vagar
    De un lugar a otro
    Dios sabe por qué
    Pero en el azul salvaje de allá
    Tu estrella está fija en mi cielo.

    [Ruth:]
    Sólo otro bar en una encrucijada
    Tan lejos de casa
    Pero eso está bien
    Siempre que voy por un camino oscuro
    No me siento solo en la noche.

    [Ambos:]
    Hay un lugar en mi corazón
    Aunque estamos muy separados
    Puedes siempre saber
    No importa cuánto tiempo desde que te vi
    Voy a mantener una llama allí para usted
    Donde quiera que vaya.

    [Mark:]
    Están buscando cerrar aquí
    Están bajando las persianas
    Pero te dejarán quedarte un rato
    No van a importar.

    [Ruth:]
    Ahora tengo que dejarte, hermano
    Así que esta ronda es mía
    Aquí te está mirando, de todos modos.

    [Ambos:]
    Puedes seguir y tener otra
    No llamarán al tiempo
    Me voy a despedir ahora.

  43. Aaryan Dev

    OMG dis is magical !!

  44. Zouhair Lyas

    Beautiful

    Any comments on the video (aside from the song)?
    This song was on Talenthouse looking for independent filmmakers to create a video for the song. (See in the video description)
    I considered making a video.
    Was curious to see which one Mark would pick.

  51. Mark Berry

    simply the best. the tears flow everytime I listen to this.

  52. Thor Svensson

    Knopfler's music has such depth. It touches my very soul.

  53. alper anik

    i lost my brother 4 month ago. i got nothing much to say cause these lines just speak for me:

    "Now I’ve got to leave you, brother
    So this round’s mine
    Here’s looking at you, anyhow
    You can go on and have another
    They won’t call time
    I’m going to say my goodbyes now

    There’s a place in my heart
    Though we’re far apart
    May you always know
    No matter how long since I saw you
    I’ll keep a flame there for you
    Wherever I go"

    farewell brother. i hope i see you in some other place.

    Valmir Souza

    So do I

    muhammet emre durmuş

    Brothers share the most touchable memories for the lifetime. I share your pain Alper. I'd like my brother to see these lines, if i die one day before him. My brother is the most important person that i love in this world. So we should live our past memories even it's gone forever.

    plop888

    alper anik
    God bless you & your brother.
    I hope that when I die, my sister will take comfort from this song. I don't have a (blood) brother, I am a brother.

  54. Hanny doornbos-looijer

    De laatste muziek tijdens de uitvaart van mijn lieve man. Een laatste groet lieverd.

    Noreen 17 good father listing the good music ,is juste good noreen!!!! .

  56. vishwanathan r

    mark knopfler makes such classy songs one after other. shame on the world that these records don't go multi platinum.

    John Barry

    Amen to that.  He's a treasure.  Not a weak song on Tracker.

    Allen Younge

    yes he is

    Kalp Kumud Kumar

    this is not a multiplatinum song , multiplatnum songs are no better than shit these days ! this something special .

    Markus Böttner Music

    He is one of the best living songwriters. Tracker is the best album production I know - the songwriting, the arrangements, the musicianship from everyone involved... When I listened to Tracker for the first time with headphones, I couldn't believe it, listened to it twice in a row. What a masterpiece!

    Markus Böttner Music

    Multi-Platinum is not a marker for quality anymore, sadly.

  57. Elisabetta Mora

    I’ll keep a flame there for you
    Wherever I go

    Jos Collin

    Those are great lines. Reminds me of my

    (feat. Ruth Moody)

    Maybe I’m bound to wander
