lyrics

We play as children do
Rolling in the thick muddy laughter
Forgetting what we've seen
Oh and what we claim to know

Shedding our shame
So we can dig a hole in the backyard
Just to see what's beneath the earth.

Ooooooooooh....

Stretch our toes in the sunlight
Wake as if we're just born
See no distinction
Between us and them and that and there
Today and tomorrow,

Tomorrow's just another word
That the grown-ups use

oooooooo la di da.....

We are invincible.

And we are overflowing
And we are ticklish and grass-stained
and laughing and we are
Overflowing
And we are ticklish and grass-stained
And laughing

And our breath catches in our chests at the sight:
Tears of miraculous joy

Sweet on lips
At the sight of us being

Us babes, us babes
At being a part of something

A part of so much beauty.
