Run away from money
Quit your job and climb a tree
One with hearts instead of leaves

Build a sandcastle big enough
for us to sleep
Paint it golden with the sunrise

Cause we are
Like a wingless bird
Crashing down
To the helpless earth
And if somethin's gonna break it
See it all around you
Feel it in your body
You'll be hiding in the shadows
Where love is still alive
'Til all of it is burning

Through a field we're walkin
Empty as the open sky
We escape from all the troubles
Found a waterfall and
Took a dive to cool our skin
Finally we found this feelin'

Cause we are
Like a wingless bird
Crashing down
To the helpless earth
And if somethin's gonna break it
See it all around you
Feel it in your body
You'll be hiding in the shadows
Where love is still alive
'Til all of it is burning

Run away from money
Quit your job and climb a tree
One with hearts instead of leaves

    General Commenthow does this not have any comments?
    this song is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!
    it's so calm and comforting, and i find myself fitting it into any kind of day.
    it can't be any more pure and for that, i appreciate. you can't get much better than this.
    :)
    my own personal interpretation is love, generally. or trying to love.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about escaping from the things of this world like money and jobs and consumerism and just finding happiness in the simple things, like nature. This song has such a peaceful mood to me. It seems like finding yourself when everything and everynoe is derived and unoriginal.
    The verses seem pretty self explanitory to me, but im not sure about the chorus. I think it has a theme of love and peace especially the line "..climb a tree, one with hearts instead of leaves."
    But altogether a completly beautiful song !
