when i was just a boy still owl-eyed
i liked to drink the rain to taste the sky
i tried to count the stars while in my bed
to keep the thoughts of monsters from my head

and i believed the stars were wishes
i believed the world was good
i believed things hid in the dark
and that all would turn out just how it should
i believed in all your stories
i believed you'd never lie
i believed if i could climb the trees behind the house,
i'd touch the sky

i believed the skies were doorways home

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this yet. This is my absolute favorite song right now. I am constantly playing it on my ipod haha. This song is so emotional. It gets me every time I listen to it.

    General CommentTo me this song is all about childhood. When we were kids there was no such thing as impossible, we believed we were indestructible and we were free. Gah how I miss those days of pure imagination, bliss, joy, innocence...what I'd give to leave the worries of the world and go back to when it didn't matter..
