I wonder what it feels like to drown in the sky
Dancing above the rooftops
Watching time fly by

Inhaling all the clouds
If I had a breath to breathe it’d rip it from my lungs
As I sank closer to the stars

Then crying a thunderstorm
I’d bundle up the dusky clouds to keep me warm
Lighting the darkness with the fire in my starry eyes

Oh how I dream

I wonder what it feels like to sleep on the surf
Drawing up the ocean carpet
And tucking myself in with the tide

Imagining I’m a grain of sand
Surrounded by a million friends
Yet I know every one of them by name

The crystal sea
Creeps across to float me to the deep
I’d find a new home in blue shadows

Oh how I dream
