I wanna be where the talk of the town
Is about last night
When the sun went down
Yeah, and the trees all dance
And the warm wind blows
And the same old sound

And the water below
Gives a gift to the sky
And the clouds give back
Every time they cry
Make the grass grow green
Beneath my toes
And if the sun comes out
I'll paint a picture all about
The colors I been dreamin' of
The hours just don't seem enough
To put it all together
Maybe its as strange as it seems
Mmm, mmm

And the trouble I find
Is that the trouble finds me
Its a part of my mind
It begins with a dream
And the feelin' I get
When I look and I see
That this world is a puzzle
Find all of the pieces
And put it all together
And then I'll rearrange it
I'll follow it forever
And always be as strange as it seems
Mmm, mmm

Nobody ever told me not to try
Not to try
Always try
Always try

And the water below
Gives a gift to the sky
And the clouds give back
Every time they cry
Make the grass grow green
Beneath my toes
And if the sun comes out
I'll paint a picture all about
The colors I been dreamin' of
The hours just don't seem enough
To put it all together
Always be as strange as it seems
Mmm, mmm

    General CommentJack Johnson said this song was how he saw the world as a little boy and how he always wanted to paint everything he saw and then he tried to paint the day but he could never finish because then the night came and things changed, and when he tried to paint the night he couldn't finish as well because then the day came and so on. Time just runs to fast to catch up with it.
