I'm coming home with a stone strapped onto my back
I'm coming home with a burning hope turning all my blues to black
I'm looking for a sacred hand to carve into my stone
A ghost of comforts, Angels breath to keep this life inside my chest

This world falls on me, dreams of immortality
Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me

Now that I woke up in the middle of a dream
I was scared the world was too much for me
Sejarez said, "Don't let go just plant the seeds and watch them grow"
I've slept in rainy canyon lands cold drenched to my skin
(I've slept in rainy canyon lands)
I always wake to find a face to calm these troubled lands
(I always wake to find a face)

If this world falls on me, dreams of immortality
Everywhere I turn all the beauty just keeps shaking me

Now I'm running to the end of the earth
And I'm swimming to the edge of the sea
And I'm laughing, I'm under a starry sky
This world was meant for me, don't bury me
(Carry me)

I wish I was a nomad, an Indian or a saint
The edge of death would disappear leave me nothing left to taint
I wish I was a nomad, an Indian or a saint
Give me walking shoes, feathered arms and a key to Heaven's gate

If this world falls on me, hopes of immortality
Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me

I'm running
(This world falls on me)
To the end of the earth
(With hopes of immortality)
I'm swimming
(Everywhere I turn)
To the edge of the sea
(The beauty keeps on shaking me)

And I'm laughing
(This world falls on me)
'Cause I'm under a starry sky
(Hopes of immortality)
This world was meant for me
(Everywhere I turn)
I've got hopes of immortality
