Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time comes billowing across the sand
And everything is green, the sun beneath
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the where's or the why's
But something stares and something tries
And starts to climb towards the land

Strangers passing in the street by chance to separate closes meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no one calls us to the dawn
And no one forces down our eyes
And no one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and insighting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And crawl to you across the sky
