Caught Between The Earth And Sky

Caught between the earth and sky
I want to live before I die
I want to hold within my hands
the break of dawn the desert sands

The sun and moon the stars and skies
I want to see with childlike eyes
I want to swim the oceans deep
and play once more before I sleep

In forests green with faeries wild
I want to be just like a child 
I want to fly with angels wings
there are so many other things

So many other things to do
I want to be in love with you
I want to laugh and skip and sing
and then to dance within the ring

Of fire that surrounds the shore
I want this and so much more
I want to climb the highest heights
and count the stars on moonlit nights

In wooden ships to sail the seas
I want to do just what I please
I want to frolic in the dreams 
of all the ancient kings and queens

In castle courts of marbled stone
I want no more to be alone
I want to swim the oceans deep
along the purpled coral reef

With fishes yellow, red and blue
I want to spend my life with you
I want to hear the mermaid's song
but here is not where I belong

For He who made the earth and sky
is bidding me to say goodbye
To all the dreams within my heart
and knowing this I must depart

To be with him is so much more
I want to walk that distant shore
I want to see him face to face
and being held in his embrace

Is so much more than all of this
I want to be with him in bliss
I want to pierce the earth and sky
I want to live before I die
