thought i saw you

i thought i saw you again
we opened our hearts and let each other in
we spoke of our memories and of places we’ve been
of what we’ve come to know and our visions

i remember your face so very well
every line has a story to tell
the tick tock of our clocks
rock different kinds of time
the meaning of our melodies
matches the rhythm of our rhymes

we always wanted to travel the world
set our sights on eternity with sails unfurled
for we are spirit more than of form
why worry about walls when there are no doors?

soon it will be my turn to travel with the tide
i’ve heard you say that the waters wide
i’ve got to know myself what’s on the other side
you know this feeling yourself there is no denying
yes we are spirit more than of form
why worry about walls when there are no doors?

and when our journey is over much
we’ll meet by the water and share a cup
there’ll always be a place for you and a place for me
out by the sea silhouetting free

i thought i saw you again
i thought i saw you i thought i saw you
thought i saw you thought i saw you thought i saw you
