I see you. you as a child
Before you learned much too much
So now

You shy away
Afraid of it
Of everyone
Of everything
You lock it up
You hide away your light

All grown up, responsible
So adult and now

You're saving for a rainy day
And maybe it's
Not far away
You're waiting for a later date to live

But time, time will not hold us down anymore
We'll dance in the river of dreams
And swim in the wide open water of light
Where all is forgiven

We'll turnaround
We'll be okay
With everything
We'll float away
We'll work it out
We'll make it up again

Time, time will not hold us down anymore
We'll dance in the river of dreams
Swim in the wide open water of light
Where all is forgiven
And all is forgotten at last.
