If you were a bird and you lived very high,
Knew from the wind when the breeze came by,
Say to the wind as it took you away,
"That's where I wanted to go today"
And I didn't know that I need to have you around, and I do
And I didn't know that I need to have you around

Love like a mountain springtime,
Flashing through the rivers of my mind;
It's what I feel for you (armadillo)

You and me go walking south
And we see all the world around us,
The colors blind my eyes and my mind to all but you,
And I didn't know that I need to have you around, and I do

I didn't know that I need to have you around.

'Spect you're wondering
I have a house where I can go
When there's too many people around me
I can sit and watch all the people
Down below goin' by me;
Halfway down the stairs is a stair
Where I sit and think about you and me;

But I wonder will the sun still see all the people goin'by
Will the moon still hang in the sky when I die,
When I die, when I'm high, when I die?

If you were a cloud and you sailed up there,
You sail on water as blue as air,
You'd see me here in the fields and say,
'Doesn't the sky look green today?'
Doesn't it look green?

But I wonder will the sun still see all the people goin'by
Will the moon still hang in the sky when I die,
When I die, when I'm high, when I die, die, die, die?
