Mae – Communication lyrics
I was born in '82, a poor man's son
When it came to hand-me-downs, he only gave me one
At first I was ungrateful, and once I was confused

He said music is the cup for you I pour
It's all I really have, wish I can give you more
But I have to catch my ride, son
I'm off to a distant shore

See, my dad gave me the keys
But I had to show myself to the door

Soon the words he left were too faint to hear
And a path of no direction made it hard to steer
My soul was dry at first year
My mind was so unclear
While wandering around in searching there
I came across a man I've seen before, I swear
And again I'd see him too
On the beach with the fating of the moon
And he'd say
Communication is calling you
It's all in you, no hesitation
You've got to see this through

I needed something to fill me up
In my bag, a gift from dad, my music cup
Well, I should have looked there first, in an attempt to quench the thirst
Each day was like a melody, with words to follow so expressively
I was off to share my song, I knew it wouldn't be too long
Till I was standing on the stage
And the crowd would sing it back to me and we'd sing

Communication is calling us, it's all in us
A celebration, for you and me, and the universe
Our destination, oh
(How we find the answer)
When we search beyond ourselves, you know we always learn
(We've becomes so clever)
Let our walls crumble and burn away
(We can change forever)
Can we lend a better hand then the one that we've been dealt?

And we sing, la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la, la la, la la

We sing communication (la la la la la la la la)
I walked the beach that morning and I found my fateful friend
When there with his words of wisdom and a fishing rod in hand
I watched him and I listened
So peculiar and so sweet, singing
Love is all that we need
And communication, yeah, and communication

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la, la la, la la
I said communication
Is calling me, and yes it's all in me

The cup has served me well for 15 years
With music in my world, I've shed some fears
And I've tried to understand
How to be a better man
There is rhythm to my life that ebbs and flows
Sometimes the inspiration comes and goes
But whenever it arrives
Well, I go down and take a dive

When I swam up to the surface
I sing communication, every time
Yeah, yeah
I sing communication
I sing communication, every time
(La la la, la la la la)

I sing communication, la la la, la la la la
La la la, la la la la
