Born without words, just feel Earthly and Divine
Now that I'm getting reborn, I've got a few more words this time
Like all the world I'm no different from the way that I feel
Life pushing through the fence, and yeah you can sense it
Yeah you can sense it
Like different colours of hair and smells of kitchens
the difference between fresh air and factory precision
I feel the moon pulling in my belly
Through chaos and order, and circles of boulders some people rearranged to dance together
It took more than a few thousand years to get here
Now you're standing on pavement, the wind in your hair
and it brings me back down to earth
so I can say hi to higher Love!
Oh Love maybe I don't really know all the much about ya
Part from more than millions of seeds and beliefs
Far more than anyone could doubt ya
I know about ya
The way you move, the way you wait
It's wild lavender and voices from the forest unproven
It's learning not to fear my movements
Cuz every movement is of course a growth
And every voice teaches me what I don't know
We're inborn of a star pulling through, yeah I'm born of the same star as you!
The same star as you
And I'm sinking and jumping in a leap of faith
Because the universe needs each other
Push and pulling the moment just like every being is a lover, and I won't be undercover
I could prove it to you
In all this it must be nature's sympathy that welcomes my heart
Yeah we're so invited to the real thing
The Universe inspires Love into Everything!
To bring you to rebirth, the Big Sense is inside of me
For what's it's worth, you were born of the same star as me
the same star as me
And maybe there's a path or void somewhere out there waiting for our voices
As if the arrow of time could fly in a particular direction by choices
I know that every sound is far more than noises.
