I remember when all the trees knew your name

Flames from fire flies would light our way

Have I lost all that which I never knew I had found

Searching for you on the wings



On oceans to you

All my time comes to you

How long has it been

Flying home again



Will we be the same as we were once before

Remember like children the stories of old

Your hand was in mine be the firelight when we danced

Mighty wind will carry me





On oceans to you

All my time comes to you

How long has it been

Flying home again

And I’ll be there too

And I’ll be there soon

    General CommentI think it points to the lost tribes of Israel, scattered to the four corners of the earth - being called back. Perhaps this makes me a "lost tribes/ two house" advocate...I see plausibility exists, even if scant. And I know not real popular in mainstream Jewish/Christian populus. That's why it often feels like I'm drifting on an ocean with "home" in view but its so far, and not even sure if they'll grant me safe passage to that treasured land, but I drift toward it nonetheless. Yep, people like me with no visible jewish ancestry within the last 4 generations that somehow are being drawn in; things we were raised/trained to believe were done away with/passe are now vital to daily life. Its all new frontier and yet as I adapt more and more its like coming back to something that was in me all the time...a recovery from some generational/spiritual "amnesia", just all so strange, and yet so all consuming and unescapable! These lyrics speak so beautifully to this journey God has me on, and I know quite a few others in recent days.

    General CommentGorgeous song! I think this is about his connection to the woman he fell deeply in love with, and was later parted from for some time, but was divinely destined to be reunited with and eventually become married to. He tells this story in the documentary 'The Sea In Between'.
