I found myself standing on a rock

It was pretty big I couldn’t see around it

Just went on and on until it didn’t stop

It was green and it was brown

It was blue and it was white

And it spun around so fast that the day turned into night

I tried running forward so I could see over the edge

But soon I found myself sleeping in somebody else’s bed

And they said


Don’t look for light bulbs when you’re standing in the sunshine

And don’t think you’ll get tomorrow in your sights

No matter how many times you run it through your head

Because you’ll never get it right

No, you’ll never get it right

So, when you wake up in the same place and you see it all again

It doesn’t mean that you’re not moving, doesn’t mean you should pretend

That you’re not flying, you’re not spinning

You’re not dancing with Mars

Because you’re made out of atoms that were built inside of stars

So don’t look for lightbulbs when you’re standing in the sunshine

And don’t try to explain away your life

When you find the answer is not what you need

That’s when you get it right

That’s when you’ve got it right

How many pencil leads?

How many song names?

How many times you gonna rattle that picture frame?

How many years and how many days?

How many mystics and how many motorways?

Doctors, dreams, drums and keys

It’s all I was and it’s all behind me

But I’ll keep singing the songs and I’ll keep writing new ones

‘Cause it’s who you are more than where you belong.
