Heard there was a secret land
that when you saw the sun
It just stretched out for miles and miles

And when the pasture turned
And when the grass bent
You felt yourself connected right between them

Oh now Leroy
I need you to get up
I need you to get ready, we’re leaving in the morn
Oh now Leroy
I need you to trust me
Where we’re headed I’ve never seen before

And I heard there was a strangers face
That when you saw his eyes
You felt like you had been there
Like you met in another time

And there is a well
That you can draw from
Yeh you can drink the water
And we can be together


And if I can’t cross the ocean
If I cannot climb the mount
And I cannot hold the shapeless in my hand
But I can try to lift it up
