I belong to no one
Like the watermelon
Rolling with momentum, spitting out its seeds

Buried under snow and waiting just to show us
How it grow and knows how yummy it will be

I belong to no on
A song without an album
Long forgotten maxim spoken to the sea:
I belong with no one/ I belong with no one/ I belong with no one...

you belong with me

When I was a boy
I Wished that I was older
Wished that I was taller, tall enough to see
See the things I see today
Now I wish they'd go away
Now they've led me far astray
Stray from what I need

Needle in the hay
Lost but in my place
Peaceful in my way
Hope I never have to sow again
Tumble, tumble down
As I strike the ground
Make a mighty sound knowing I have found a way

A way / A way
A way to always belong
Belong / Belong
Won't be long until I am gone
Away / Away
Away to always belong
Belong / Belong
Won't belong until I am gone

I am just a no one
I'm the same as everyone
Spinning underneath the sun, head between my knees
I belong to no one
I am a minimum
Rolling into bigger sums adding them to me

Needle in the hay
Lost but in my place
Peaceful in my way
Hope I never have to sow again
Tumble, tumble down
As I strike the ground
Make a mighty sound knowing I have found a way


A way / A way
A way to always belong
Belong / Belong
Won't be long until I am gone
Away / Away
Away to always belong
Belong / Belong
Won't be long until I am gone

    My InterpretationIts interesting that he relates the sea to "old wisdom" (in the song he says "long forgotten maxim") and then tells us how the only thing he belongs to is the sea. He rhymes "sea" with "me".

    My guess is that he is referring to the old wisdom that the only thing that really exists is this Life, and he belongs only to this Life. Pantheistic view maybe, or maybe I am diving too deep into the lyrics haha.

    Bottom line, this song is A-MAZING and has an obvious freedom theme and tone to it :)
