Here am I – learning how to fly
Far away from all communication
You and me, floating out to sea
No one needs to know our destination
(diff melody, same chords)

There’s a road ahead – you can take it if you dare
Don’t look back don’t look for affirmation

There’s a place for us to be making our own destiny / history
There’s a time for us to keep the promises we made
To ourselves we must be true and see things from a wider view
Only when we look around / inside
Will we see Who We Are.

Time and tide, are always on my mind
Won’t somebody stop this fascination?

There’s ticking clock, only you can make it stop
Time is just another obfuscation

CH repeat, then

Who are we – to say that we are free?
When we know its just a foolish notion.
And who are you, to do the things you do?
Who am I to judge the situation?

Here am I – forgetting how to cry
Far away from all human emotion
You and me, floating out to sea
No one needs to know our destination
No one needs to know our destination
No one wants to know our destination
