lyrics

Once We Reached For The Sun

(Chorus)
Once we reached for the sun
Now we falter
Once we reached for the sun
Now we fade

(Verse)
But I once sailed the galaxy,
Tore stars down from where angels dance and sing
And then I came to you and offered you the sky
Until you took it, until you had the faith to try

I heard the ocean sing its song
I sat and listened until I could sing along
And then I sang it to you softer than a sigh
Until you heard it, until you had the faith to try

(Chorus)

(Verse)
I danced among the redwood trees,
Painted pictures of possibilities
Then I showed it to you ‘til you heard the cry
Until you listened, until you had the faith to try

And as we sauntered through the park,
It was I who gave to you that infant spark
Electricity surged inside your mind
Until you felt it, until you had the faith to try

(Bridge)
I'm the raging fire
I'm the beating drum
I'm the shepherd, the savior
The will to run
I’m the Angel’s song
I’m the symphony
I am what you make of it
Am what you let me be

(Chorus)

(Verse)
I sailed across the galaxy,
Tore stars down from where angels dance and sing
Then I came to you and offered you the sky
Until you took it, until you had the faith to try

And there's a place you call the truth
You rarely spoke of it when you were in your youth,
But now you hold me there my hands and feet are tied
And I’ll keep screaming, please won’t you just let me try
Let me try…

Once we reached for the sun

"Thank you to the persistence and power of imagination. Even from your cells, you ignite the world." - Joshua Fialkoff
