How greatly have you loved?
How fully have you lived?
How deeply have you let go?
- The Buddha


I guess I'm over the
hill this time all of the
grasses grow on this side
and they're green, mama
green, mama

Come with me over the
grassy sea into the
big cloud sky diving so
deep and flying higher
and kinder in time, whoa
you and me
together in forever

ooh, i don't know
ooh, why it rained so very long
ooh, i love you
ooh, whether the weather's nice
the moment's right

you'll go over the
hill in time all of your
burns and blues will
follow you there
but they'll be light as air, mama

come with me over the
grassy sea under her
moonbright eyes into his
big brown arms and
see what it's like oh
you and me
together, in forever
