lyrics

I once was lost
but now I'm still lost
and loving it
I wouldn't give it up for anything
'cause now I'm free to go anywhere
my heart is open to the sound, the smell, the taste
and it's time to forget the past
the present, future only now have we begun to wake
from those nightmares gone
no the new dreams come

and can't you wait
for a minute for heaven's sake
you know you're already there
won't you open your eyes and look around
at what the world's all about
'cause I'm not about to hold my breath

and wait for other people
to understand that I have no plan to call my own
and my home is on my back
like a tortoise shell
you know they have no hell they just have now
and it's what you make of it
only you decide
how you spend your time

but if you really live
even for a second in time and space
you know that's already more than most people
will live in their whole lives
and that's what the world's all about
not about
