fly

where are the oceans?
pearls of my dreams
can you see every forest
for the trees?

how did i get here
when did you arrive?
it all began when hoping
was the price to be alive

and i know
(and i know)
that right can separate from wrong
but our worlds will never laugh to every song

and i see
(yes i see)
that there is danger up ahead
but i can’t forget the last thing that you said

it all comes around
all will divide
silence breaks the mirrors
for each scream within your eyes

and i know we are winning
but the game was never played
and inside i am dying every day

without you
the world seems so harsh
and every tear i never bled
lights up the dark

you held me forever
our ghosts are intertwined
for the sake of every mountain moved in time

where did the oceans go?
the forests for the trees…

where are the ancient spells
that brought us to our knees?

how will we get there
if the game was never played
how did darkness light each candle in the rain?

and i know
(yes i see)
that fever melted countless hearts
but the lucky ones will end before
they start

and i see
(yes i know)
that time was gathered on our side
when the best could only hope to stay alive

i waited there in silence
to let you be
for the strength within your words
were not for me

it all comes around
all will divide
sorrow breaks the mirrors
for each scream within your eyes

and i know that we are winning
but the game was never played
and inside i am dying every day

you tipped your hat to the ocean
saw the forest for the trees
gave me hope in each tomorrow
if tomorrow would believe

and as i cried my tears
and lit the candle in the dark
i never listened for your prayers
they found their mark

it all comes around
all divided to and fro
but don’t worry
i am here
i won’t let go

there was never one day
that you were absent from my mind
and to play a game to win
leaves fears behind

see i know
(always knew)
that right will settle far from wrong
and darkened mirrors shatter weakly to the song

and i see
(yes i see)
there is danger up ahead
but i won’t turn around
i won’t turn around
i’ll grab you instead

and run to the ocean
love the forest for the trees
die our little deaths
so that faith can still be free

then to open up tomorrow
time will bury every past
and the bridges that we burned
are warmth that lasts

it all comes around
all will divide
silence breaks each mirror
for the shards within your eyes

i never held a promise
that the darkness could not keep
i never let you go
it’s settled, deep

yes i know
(always knew)
that life would hand me every game
and you know
(yes you know)
the price was paid

i’ll run to your ocean….
you’ll swim in the breeze
and who can see the forest?
who will see the forest
who can know a forest
for the trees?
