lyrics

Remember when we were young and thought dust bunnies were alive?
We thought the swirling sundust were moving atoms in disguise;
Our eyes of green were all the years we needed to hold
The faint glimmers off tree leaves giving light to all that's growing old.
And clouds formed shapes that we'd give names in warm suspiring skies
But as they passed the shapes would change and we'd give them another life;
We would dance in sunlight mixed with rain that would visit in the cold,
And catch the laughter rippling in puddles, not knowing what we're told.

And now I just want someone to share all this life with;
Someone to share all these bubbling laughs with.
To be with me by the fountain in the city,
Someone who knows what it's like to live
As passengers sent to feel the light brimming
Leaking so soft in the dream of the waking
And breathing so gently like the pulse of the waters
That cool our heads and keeps us mistaking.
We hear music from passing cars
And wet our lips to sweet weekend air
Like tides blowing against your face,
To shine those rising eyes that say, "I care..."

What to give to palliate my palate for sensation,
And to release it all for the drunken liberation.
And the words paint freckles across your age
Bridging the rivers between blank and sage.

To be young as we are today,
To be young as we'll always be.
As if we never existed,
To feel like we can ever exist here.

Counting the dust on my skin, you laugh with your hands on my skin,
Dancing the steps that will be washed away -- You've already seen,
And maybe we're the clouds after all
Transmuting the psalms of lilting falls
We could live as raindrops do
Or we could be dancing in sunlight swoon
Or we could be running aside the colors
That dance anyways though they can't hear us discover.

Words paint freckles across your age
Bridging the rivers between blank and sage.
To be young as we are today,
To be young as we'll always be.
As if we never existed,
To feel like we can ever exist here.

We could live as raindrops do
Or we could be dancing in sunlight swoon
Or we could be running aside the colors
That dance anyways though they can't hear us discover.

Counting the dust on my skin, you laugh with your hands on my skin,
Dancing the steps that will be washed away -- You've already seen...
