lyrics

Clouds of Magellan

Watching the time-piece unwind on cold winter’s night
Hearing the heartbeat, the rhythm of breathing again
Staring at endless skies whirling around, here on the ground
a traveler in time

From the Clouds of Magellan
To the Boat of Orion
In the eyes of a child
There’s time

Connecting the notions of distance and the nature of being
Of the space between galaxies, atoms, and us,
Sensations of floating or falling, release from this earth
I’m drawn to the sky

From the Clouds of Magellan
To the Boat of Orion
In the eyes of a child
There’s time

Hands over eyes I remember as a child
When time withdrew and all was close to me
And to reach out and touch the vast unknown
Was just so natural and the truth so free

From the Clouds of Magellan
To the Boat of Orion
In the eyes of a child
There’s time
