Lyrics

Rippling waters by the edge of a stream
Sunning on a rock and I fall into a dream
I dream that I’m lying at the bottom of a lake
Caught in an endless flow of give and take
Then the waters start rushing round me
And I’m swept out to the sea
Being carried out in the tide like this
Seems so natural to me

Why must life seem such a struggle?
And why do we leave here when we die?
And why do we even ask these questions?
When the world goes black, still the phoenix flies

I’m still dreaming and I’m rafting with friends
Down the ancient river to where the glacier ends
Icebergs being born then melting again
Making awesome sculptures disappearing the bay
Thought the trip is almost over, the journey’s just begun
Returning to the Ocean, transformed by the sun

Why must life seem such a struggle?
And why do we leave here when we die?
And why do we even ask these questions?
When the world goes black, still the phoenix flies

Suddenly everything goes black
And my world’s consumed by fire
There’s eleven volcanoes rising under me
Pushing me higher and higher

Getting colder the sun disappears
I wake up with the sound of music in my ears
The wind is playing me a traveling tune
Got an appointment with the mountain and the moon
Yah you’ll find me there in the cool calm
With a song that fills my heart
When the flowers and trees sing back to me
Then I’ll know I’ve done my part

And life need not be such a struggle
And we really don’t leave here when we die
This journey is all about asking questions
When you open your heart, then the phoenix flies
