The scent, a smoke on desert wind
Beneath the Southern Cross
Far beyond where time begins
And generations loss

I could not be further from you
Now with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
I am a closer to you now

If I should lay me down to sleep
By forest green or shining lake
I could arise to find you gone
To take for granted my mistake

Yet I could not be further from you
Now with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
I am a closer to you now

Mountains crumble forests vanish
Seeds awakened by the fire
Water air and earth have borne them
And I can feel my old ones near

Yet I could not be further from you
Now with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
And I am a closer to you now

Flames are dancing in the fire
Timeless songs are on the air
In the wilderness they're crying
But there is laughter everywhere

And I could not be further from you
Now with both feet on the ground
But in the dreamtime
Souls take flight
I am a closer to you now.
I am a closer to you now.
