lyrics

all we need is the light of the moon to grow so tall
all we need is the soil from the only earth we'll ever know
arms in cradles dropped off by the babies, it's time now
let the waves wash you away
your beauty in the blue light of morning made it so clear
two voyagers on the sea

this is the land the sunset washes
these are the banks of the yellow sea
this is the shade from the trees that shadow us in their mystery
smile now as our world we create, just you and me

our walls disappear, the floor fades away (3x)

so we jump from clouds we once thought we'd fall through
and swim to the bottoms of lakes we once were taught not to do
with nowhere for our feet to stand
we play our game in your little plant land
with nowhere for our feet to stand
we play our game in your little plant land
