lyrics

I never knew my time spent in the sun
I never knew my soft spots
I never knew my defiant nature
And I never knew my seriousness

In ways I don’t always understand are yours
In ways you won’t imagine are yours

I never knew every stage, every song
I never, never knew my wisdom
And I never knew every blooming horizon
And I never knew my worldliness

In ways I don’t always understand I owe to you
In ways you can’t imagine I owe you

And if I’m sometimes blind, soon I’ll remember
Thank you for, thank you for cities and seas
If sometimes words fail me, I’ll find them again
Thank you for, thank you for, thank you for cities and seas

I never expected such challenge
And I never expected such journeys
And I never guessed, never guessed, never guessed
These people, these friends, these accomplices

In ways I don’t always understand are yours
In ways you won’t imagine they’re yours

And if I’m sometimes blind, soon I’ll remember
Thank you for, thank you for cities and seas
If sometimes words fail me, I’ll find them again
Thank you for, thank you for, thank you for cities and seas

And it isn’t defeat to let you hear
No it isn’t defeat for me to bow
