lyrics

My thoughts are quiet in the morning
Before the birds start singing songs.
Sometimes a blue sky is a warning:
The rains are coming before long.

In the trees, there's a dance
Shaking birds in the wind,
And the leaves' cascading trance--
They are fire before it begins.

Come with me, let's fly away
Into the green
To where the trees speak to the sky.
I can see eternity
It's just right there
Behind your eyes.

The day is long and I am growing
With every second that gos by.
The wind is strong and I am going,
But I don't want to say goodbye.

In the trees, there's a dance
Shaking birds in the wind,
And the leaves' cascading trance--
They are fire before it begins.

Come with me, let's fly away
Into the green
To where the trees speak to the sky.
I can see eternity
It's just right there
Behind your eyes.

I'm lookin' for a place to rest,
And you are tired I can see.
In my heart there is a forest,
And I want you there with me.

In the trees, where we can dance
Like shaking birds in the wind,
And the leaves' cascading trance--
They are fire before it begins.

Come with me, let's fly away
Into the green
To where the trees speak to the sky.
I can see eternity
It's just right there
Behind your eyes.
