Oceans of Time

Jeff Nesvig

Sail me across the water

fly me through the sky

touch me down on the highest mountain, Lord

I need you by my side.


Oceans of time in a world so big

With answers lost in curious thoughts

But I feel the sand beneath my feet

And I know just where I am.


Can you hear the music of the words we’ve shared

They’re beautiful but out of tune

We can leave our thoughts on papyrus sheets

And send them to the moon.


With only one chance to find our way to the words we left behind

We can sing each song to the seminal wind

And watch them as they hide in secret places in oceans of time.
