Why We're Here

Living & Loving, I'm breathing it in
Oh, the world is surely bringing me
Gifts on the wind
Was I blind too many times
To see what that is
Well, I never want to be that again

I'm tired of running to get nowhere fast
Oh, I thought I'd never settle this
Score with my past
All those years I was fearing
The shadow I made
Oh I never want to do that again

Now we're coming into view
Of the crown of a hill
Something shows us what to do
And it always will
There are moments in life
When the sky comes clear
And we suddenly remember
Why we're here

I used to look out and nothing was real
It's like life was a movie
I just couldn't feel
Deep enough, I was young
But I felt old inside
And I wondered when I'd ever come alive

I'd get lonely in rainy weather
Then I'd crawl around in my pain
For some reason I just got better
I know in the rain, things grow

Living and loving, I'm breathing it in
Oh, the world is surely bringing me
Gifts on the wind
Was I blind too many times
To see what that is
Well, I never want to be that again

Now we're coming into view
Of the crown of a hill
Something show us what to do
And it always will
There are moments in life
When the sky comes clear
And we suddenly remember
Why we're here
