lyrics

When I was just a kid
I couldn't sleep
What had I done wrong
for my mind to keep
accusing me of mysteries
Waiting for the day

So I'd softly step
to my mother's room
and beside her bed
confess to the gloom
and while she slept
her hand on my back
welcome sounds of day

Where did I go, where did I go?
Sometimes there's things we're not meant to know
A joy in the clouds
another new day
floating me far away, far away

When I was seventeen
I couldn't speak
just fumbled words
and blushing cheeks
In darkened trees
you rescued me
and met me where I lay

Maybe I needed this
'cause I'm stronger in the end
Maybe it's all a test
'cause I found you in the end

Where did I go, where did I go?
Sometimes there's things we're not meant to know
A joy in the clouds
another new day
floating me far away, far away
