Lyrics by Monica Richards

lyrics

Sitting here as the crowd flows by
People flowing like water
Like tiny stars towards the universal light
Our lives flow along something great and unseen

Where have we been going all this time
Just close your eyes.

People flowing like water

I just need a moment.
Just close your eyes.
And we will all return

(We flow
We breathe
We laugh
We fall
We burn
Always we return)

Where have we been going all this time
Just close your eyes.

Cities growing like the wind
Rising up and gone again
Like the scent of desert rain
The sand will cover us again

We are all just tiny cells
Flooded by our raw emotions
Our anger is an energy like fire
Destructive and all-consuming

Where have we been going all this time
The Secret Garden…
I just need a moment.
Shhhhhh…
Just close your eyes.
And we will return
Something in you something deep remembers…

Sitting here as the crowds flow by
People searching for answers
Drowning as they see different colored skies
Addicted now to cold attention

Where have we been going…?
We flow
We breathe
We laugh
We fall
We burn
Always we return
