Sail me across the water
fly me through the sky
touch me down on the highest mountain, Lord
I need you by my side.
Oceans of time in a world so big
With answers lost in curious thoughts
But I feel the sand beneath my feet
And I know just where I am.
Can you hear the music of the words we’ve shared
They’re beautiful but out of tune
We can leave our thoughts on papyrus sheets
And send them to the moon.
With only one chance to find our way to the words we left behind
We can sing each song to the seminal wind
And watch them as they hide in secret places in oceans of time.
