Think of a place I would go,
I’m daydreamin’,
Where the sycamore grow,
I’m daydreamin’,
And oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Where the air was so clear,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Anywhere but here.

Oh now look to the east,
Great mountains remember me,
Oh I wound around you for miles,
I sat down right there and stretched my bones.
And oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
You would see, too.

Oh the unspeakable things,
It’s land I can see for miles,
With only the wind whispering,
Land I can see for miles,
With only the wind whispering,
Oh land I can see for miles,
With only the wind whispering,
Oh I’d run as fast as I can
Land I can see for miles
Oh I’m searching,
With only the wind whispering,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
You would see, too.

Oh the unspeakable things,
Oh the unspeakable things,
Oh the unspeakable things,
Oh the unspeakable things.

    My Opinion"Oh the unspeakable things,
    ...
    Oh if you knew what it meant to me,
    You would see, too."

    Behind these lyrics is a rising siren sound that gets louder and louder, almost drowning out the words, reinforcing the feeling this song has always given me... that dream of where we would rather be than where we actually are/have been, and how hard those feelings can be to share.

    Just a thought ;¬)

    My InterpretationThis song is melancholy but it's very relieving, it's beautiful.
    Whenever I listen to this song, a series of wonderful and precious memories starts flashing back in my mind..And sometimes, I even start imagining alternate endings to those unpleasant events I've had in life. I start daydreaming. This song gives me hope. I start thinking of a parallel world where everything works out fine in my life, to which I find comfort. It's an astonishing feeling.

    I want this song to be played at my funeral.

    My OpinionTo me this song reminds me of this roadtrip I take every summer. The people I've met there are amazing and the freedom is overwhelming. All I ever think about is going back and the memories sometimes put me in a daze.
