Lyrics
Wear your art or wear your wound
Shine your light or you'll be doomed
Every day is borrowed time
Hey, I just saw a friend of mine
And, ain't it funny meeting you here
ain't it funny meeting you here

Me and my friend Richard, we had a lovely chat
We talk about this and we talk about that
he's going to Boston for lunch again today
I say, "Don't worry Brother! It will be okay!"

And we both are grateful and we're both so afraid
We live in a place that fate has made
And we dance to the rythmn, we dance to the sun
We dance with the hope that a new day has begun.

Me and my friend Richard, we love the spring.
Flowers bloom, grass so green, it's a beautiful thing!
Maya Angelou wrote, "Why Does The Caged Bird Sing?"
Well, we know why the caged bird sings!

Walking thru that forest, we're looking up at the sky
Knowing there is something bigger than you and I
and we're swimming in muddy water
We're swimming in muddy water!

And we both are grateful and we're both so afraid
We live in a place that fate has made
And we dance to the rythmn, we dance to the sun
We dance with the hope that a new day has begun.

and when the time comes we have to say, "Goodbye"
those we leave behind will say, "Fly, fly, fly!"
'cause caged birds are not meant to be caged
and wild horses are bound to run away
and rivers push thru mountains and rain can part the sea,
no matter what our choices what is meant to be will be.

And we both are grateful and we're both so afraid
We live in a place that fate has made
And we dance to the rythmn, we dance to the sun
We dance with the hope that a new day has begun.

Wear your art or wear your wound
Shine your light or you'll be doomed
Every day is borrowed time
Hey, I just saw a friend of mine
and we're swimming in muddy water
we're swimming, we're swimming in muddy water!
