the sun's heading down again
burying everything in the dark
it covers the land
makes it so hard to stay up

so we all fall down
ashes, ashes are all that is left
when we all fall down
and you can lay down by my side

and when we wake up
will we remember anything?
those colorful dreams
they seem like a history

where we all fall down
ashes, ashes we danced all around
then we all fall down
the dust will settle one day

i'm shedding my sunday clothes
well, i'll put them in the corner so i won't forget
that we're all still seven years old
and we wonder what comes next
so i'm anxiously awaiting my new best friend
and i'm hopelessly addicted to grass and trees
to rivers, oceans, and sun
to rain and its puddles, to snowbanks and snowfights
to mountains and canyons and lakes
to cowboys and indians, rockets and astronauts
dogs, horses, and snakes

and i can't explain my love for skipping stones
and i don't know where all this hope is coming from

so put me in a rockwell
oh, immortalize my smile
'cause this world is much too big for me
no, i'd never explore it all
i'm still finding it out
and then trying to forget
while i catalog all of these people i've met
their names are redundant
their faces are all so tired


and i can't explain my love for skipping stones
and i don't know where all this hope is coming from
