all i can see lyrics – brendan james

i want to walk through this doorway
i want to open my mind
i want to pledge my allegiance to all i can find
i want a car that will crash trough the barrier
to a road no one knows
i want to feel less control on the bend and i
want to land far from home

the revolution of the earth around the sun
is the perfect lesson of how it should be
so if i cannot learn to journey and return
to never rest till i’ve seen all i can see

i want to learn a completely new language,
one i don’t understand
i want to help someone lost, someone helpless
with the strength of my hand
i want to come to the base of a statue built
before they counted the years
and there i’ll fall with my face in my hands
and cry and feel their hope in my tears

the revolution of the earth around the sun
is the perfect lesson of how it should be
so if i cannot learn, to journey and return
to never rest till i’ve seen all i can see

train rides and pastures colliding
colors and customs i’ve never seen
i know i, yes i know i,
i know i will stumble, but,
time is precious my friend

those who journey can easily understand
the more they see, the more they’ll learn,
the more that they will be
so this i swear to you, and this i swear to me
i’ll never rest till i’ve seen all i can see
no, i’ll never rest till i’ve seen all i can see

i want to know where the stength of a person lies,
in their past or their future
is it in the way that they hurt
or they love themselves, or is it all an illusion?
i want to crawl from this skin that i’m painted in
body, please let it give
i want to find the creator of all good things,
ask what it means to live
