Lift you up again
Give you to the trees
All sounds and visions are
What they ask of me
Let's run fast through the fields,
Over mountaintops
Let's swim through ocean water
And we'll never stop

Just close your eyes
And pretend that everything's fine
Just close your eyes
I'll tell you when

Can you show me
Where to find a stream
I've been told before
That the water's clean
Will you come with me
Two of us can drink
Move quick we've got to hurry,
There's no time to think

Just close your eyes
And pretend that everything's fine
Just close your eyes
I'll tell you when

We didn't come this far
Just to turn around
We didn't come this far
Just to run away

Just ahead
We hear the sound
The sound that gives us
A brand new day

Just close your eyes
And pretend that everything's fine
Just close your eyes
I'll tell you when

    I think the lyrics are about two people running from something. And they need to find somewhere safe. Probably running from some type of authority.

    Is this not about a psychedelic trip? The lyrics fit that; "give you to the trees/all sounds and visions are
    What they ask of me", especially the chorus, which signifies trying to get through a rough trip.

    Can you show me where to find my string
    I've been told before, now the water's clear
    Why you come with me to... dream
    Move quick he's got to hurry
    There's no time to think

    i think "string" is stream
    and "dream" is supposed to be drink...look at the context surrounding it
