lyrics

I went back to the forest we used to drive through
But this time I stopped and took the time it took
And I ran for miles
I wanted to feel how it feels to be a forest

I travelled this far in my mind
I travelled, I travelled this far

On the airways of my mind
Nothing can keep me from floating
I do without tower or pressure or carrier
Nothing can keep me from floating

I lay on the sand where the waves
Of my awakenings would come to vanish
One by one they hit me, soft like murmurs
And the heartbeat of the ocean
Resonated through my body
Through my body, through my body
I wanted to know what it means
To return to where you were born

I travelled this far in my mind
I travelled, I travelled this far

On the airways of my mind
Nothing can keep me from floating
I do without tower or pressure or carrier
Nothing can keep me from floating

To the red roofs and carpets of flower-white
To the fortress of sugar-green gold
To the earthy brown on my feet
Nothing can keep me from floating
Nothing can keep me from floating
Nothing can keep me from floating

I went back to the forest we used to drive through
I wanted to feel how it feels to be a forest
