Written for Sibylla


We'll watch as the water comes over us all
And nothing was finer, and nothing was wrong
All of the time it was time to belong

We will walk up the hill, we'll get to the top
We'll put down a flag and then we will stop
We'll tell all the stories that we've ever known
You've started writing one of your own

Maybe one day when you carry on
You'll find yourself lost and fear you are going
If your courage falters right down in your bones, you will find out that you're never along

So let your feet fly through forests wide
Teach your hands to let go of false price
You've got all the seeds for the things that you need
All of the time it is time to believe

Baking deserts can burst to life
Seas can dry
City pavements grind to specks
There are many ways to sleep
In bitter dreams
There are smoke screens passed off as fact
You will see through all of this
You'll see through this
You'll stay awake, you'll be awake
