lyrics

oh my god i said as she leapt into my arms
oh, my girl, where have you gone why did you run so far
to get away to see the place that i dream about each night
but the more i ran the farther the dream seemed from my eyes

i climbed so high i could taste the clouds with my tongue
they were sweet at first but i had too much and i had to climb back down i tried to run home but i couldn’t move so i cried out why can’t i Then all the birds took off and carried me right through the sky

i need you to know it’s time for me to go
