we watch the light
as it set from the sun
all the ways we could run
all the ways we could run
oh my, can you see the light
from outer space?

what was said what was done
as the time had a ride
all the ways we could run
all the things we could try
oh my, could you tell me
where this is going to lead?

and all the lights are shining on the sea
as the rolling waves crash along the beach

and our minds were meant to sail
take a rest from our thoughts
take a brake from this world
and we'll feel miles away
from the places that we used to be

as we lay in the sand
and we stare at the sky
watch the moon dancing why
as the stars latch your eyes
oh my, there's no place on earth
i'd rather be
in my eye this night just don't
feel real
but i can feel your touch
promise you won't let go

and our minds were meant to sail
take a rest from our thoughts
take a brake from this world
and we'll feel miles away
from the places that we used to be

and our minds were meant to sail
take a rest from our thoughts
take a brake from this world
and we'll feel miles away
from the places that we used to be

    General CommentI love the acoustic version to this song! i think its about detaching from the world to find something different and better, even just for a moment or too.
