"All I Can See" as written by Billy Lee Smiley, Peter Furler, John James and Sean Taylor....
I want to walk through this doorway
I want to open my mind
I want to pledge my allegiance to all I can find.
I want a car that will crash through the barriers
To a road no one knows.
I want to feel less control,
Want to bend and I want to land far from home.

The revolution of the earth around the sun
Is the perfect lesson of how it should be.
So if I cannot learn
To journey and return,
To never rest till I've seen all I can see

I want to learn a completely new language,
One I don't understand.
I want to help someone lost, someone helpless,
With the strength of my hand.
I want to come to the base of a statue built
Before they counted the years,
And there I'll fall with my face in my hands and cry
And feel their hope in my tears.

The revolution of the earth around the sun
Is the perfect lesson of how it should be.
So if I cannot learn,
To journey and return,
To never rest till I've seen all I can see

Train rides and pastures collidin
Colors and customs I've never seen
I know I, yes I know I,
I know I will stumble
But time is precious my friend.

Those who journey can easily understand,
The more they see the more they'll learn,
The more that they will be.
So this I swear to you, and this I swear to me,
I'll never rest till I've seen all I can see.
No, I'll never rest till I've seen all I can see.

I want to know where the strength of a person lies,
In their past or their future.
Is it in the way that they hurt or they love themselves
Or is it all an illusion?
I want to crawl from this skin that I'm painted in
Body, please let it give.
I want to find the creator of all good things
And ask what it means to live

    Song MeaningGorgeous song. About not wasting a second you have on earth, seeing as much as you can see while you still can, because life is very, very short.

    Truly an amazing song.
