lyrics

I will follow you where you roam
Follow you to mountaintops of stone
Glide along the pavement ‘til we’re miles from our home
I’ll follow you where you roam

I have flown much higher than the clouds
I have flown much higher than the clouds
Virginia stretched below me, the taste of you in my mouth
I have flown much higher than the clouds

If this heart of mine could learn how to fly
I’d send it away with warnings not to stray too close to the sun
It’s you that I’ve been thinking of

Clouded blue, the bottom of the sky
Colors that I swear I recognize
I am made immobile by the light behind your eyes
Clouded blue, the bottom of the sky

Faded green, the grass beneath the stone
Faded green where I could call a home
Quiet was my heart, the quietest I’ve ever known
Faded green, the grass beneath the stone

If this heart of mine could learn how to fly
I’d send it away with warnings not to stray too close to the sun
It’s you that I’ve been thinking of

Would that I were soil beneath your hand
Would that I were born a better man
That I might hold a forest, be a green and fertile land
Would that I were more than I am

I have known a heart in utter peace
I have known an aching love’s release
Clouded blue has found a way to save and shatter me
I have known a heart in utter peace
