David Wilcox – No Telling Where lyrics

It will change you like a lover
When you dive below the reef
And see the phosphorescent colors
Shimmer way beyond belief

But when taken to the surface
All that color fades away
'Cause when lifted out of water
Living coral turns to gray

But down deep, it's so bright
That the light won't leave you
You've seen this sight
And they can't believe you

'Cause your words go dull
And they never could explain
There is just no telling
Where you've been

On the map it shows the mountain
But I'd never seen a glimpse
Of the hundred miles of vista
Represented by an inch

That was just a trail of bread crumbs
All their words set out so clear
But there's nothing they could tell me
That could ever take me here

To this view, this height
That the heart remembers
It's proof, it's life
It's the burning ember

My words go cold
And there's nothing to explain
There is just no telling
Where I've been

When this sunrise sees me
The first light burns brand new
Seems so easy
To tell what I've been through

But my little camera can't keep up
With panoramas all around
There's just too much view to capture
When we stand on sacred ground

Though my mind cannot explain it
My heart's filled up to the sky
I know words could not contain it
But I'm fool enough to try

Then you smile at me
And my heart is listening
Your eyes, they speak
And there's nothing missing

It's quiet up here
We can listen to the wind
'Cause there's just no telling
Where we've been
