I can see you’ve drifted further from the stream where you were floating
And it seemed that you were getting on just fine
You walk and talk and fake a smile, sing some songs for a while
But I can see you’re trapped inside your mind

It was an early summer day when you began to drift away
It was an early summer sky I saw you go with empty eyes

Remember when I saw you last, by the river in the grass
Talking bout the days come and gone
Hours passed and evening came it brought with it a gentle rain
That fell upon the river till the dawn

The rain kept falling all the day washing people’s dreams away
Down the rushing river they did flow
Now leaves are falling to the ground, patiently without a sound
In time they will be covered by the snow

Your hope has found a resting place with a veil to hide it’s face
But seasons change dreams reappear, singing songs that you might hear
If you listen closely for a while

Our songs will send up in the air, notes will scatter everywhere
Our words will fall into the ground, waiting one day to be found

There are things we just can’t see so let’s just let life be
And feel the gentle touch of the breeze
Every wind has a song and some days we’ll sing along
To the voices that rustle in the trees
They whisper everyday if we don’t hear them it’s okay
Cause tomorrow they’ll whisper once again
Tomorrow they’ll whisper once again and we might hear them
Tomorrow they’ll whisper once again
