Back when we had it so easy
I would surrender completely
I built a shelter from green leaves
In the sun, in the sun

Around the fields we'd run
With love for everyone
Dreams we saw with eyes open
Until that dream was done

I used to be so confused
But I knew just what to say to you
I was just floating on an inner tube
In the sun, in the sun

Around the fields we'd run
With love for everyone
Dreams we saw with eyes open
Until that dream was done

    General CommentI built a shelter
    For green beings
    In the sun
    In the sun

    < Combined with the next stanza, sounds like someone's growing bud >

    Around in the fields we grew
    With love for everyone
    Dreams we saw with eyes of hope
    Until that dream was done



    I used to be
    So confuse
    Now you just want to
    Say to you

    I was just floating
    On an inner tube
    In the sun
    In the sun

    after all good pick for the first track on the album

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure he's saying "I built a shelter from green leaves" and in the chorus I'm hearing
    "around the fields we'd run
    with love for everyone
    dreams we saw with eyes open"

    My InterpretationBack when we had it so easy
    I would surrender completely
    I built a shelter from green leaves
    In the sun, in the sun

    > When we are kids we have it so easy. When we grow up, things get harder.
    > We would surrender completely, because you give yourself freely to everything without judgments.

    Around the fields we'd run
    With love for everyone
    Dreams we saw with eyes open
    Until that dream was done

    > When we are kids we run around the fields, withtout thinking on anything else.
    > With love for everyone. Of course..kids don't hate, they just love everything, and simply don't like "things". But then you start growing up and that dream changes completely.

    I used to be so confused
    But I knew just what to say to you
    I was just floating on an inner tube
    In the sun, in the sun
    > So we are confused, because we don't know the world per se. But still we know what to say, which is always the truth, what we thing in our soul. And truth in our soul means love. Thats why we feel just like floating on an inner tube..in the sun.
