back to album 'on this ground'

on this ground

from way back
i am here now
unlike this tree
i’ve been moving around

faster than light
or so it seems
and planes over my head
i roam the ground
and sometimes i look up
instead of down

from way back
i am here now
unlike this tree
i’ve been moving around

to make some sense
i just dance
i look at the horizon and see
it turned around the avalanche
shows the reds and greys that hold me

let’s face it
we’re living the future now
this is it
i think i just got smacked back
on this ground
there’s no way around

and the blues and the greens are so fine
and the blues and the greens are so fine

from way back
i am here now
from way back
just like the sea
tidal waves have moved me

knock on my bones
see where i’ve grown
take me wake me now
and to the call i let myself fall
to where i can hear it all

from way back
i am here now
from way back
just like the sea
tidal waves have moved me

no time for days
without this trace
in the heart of me
one step ahead
a change of pace
and i am right back in the big blue sea

and i am loving it
i am living it
dancing it
jumping and sliding
i am eating it
like the freshest of fruits
i am drinking it
finer than wine
and i look through the glass
that holds it
as it breaks
and water flows
and i cut through the waves
to the underneath
that is where i go
and i let myself fall
to where i can hear it all
i let myself fall
to where i can hear it all
