Lyrics:

Johnathan



Johnathan dreamed of having his own place, his own face

When it was time he borrowed a suit case, and took a chance on the human race.

Noticed a poster down at the laundry mat, for a one room flat

Set up his PC unrolled his sleeping mat, as he pulled the curtains back

He wondered of this life upon a planet in the spiral arm of a galaxy among billions who could

know what he would find, in his time, in the 21st century.


He found a job outside where the birds would sing, and the phones won't ring

took it all in like a tourist who's visiting, the new alive in everything

got his first pay cheque, made sure the bills were paid, gave the rest away

to the people he met who needed it more that day, and he was not afraid

but thankful for this life upon a planet in the spiral arm of a galaxy among billions he could be

one of the pieces in this time, in the 21st century.






Not a moment passed that wasn't savored, like an August peach

Knowing time went fast he'd taste the flavor, while the veil was breached.

And he'd never miss the chance to pass along how beautiful we are.


There was a time when he couldn't recognize, his own disguise

But he started to see the world through a child's eyes, he began to realize

What we see in a mirror is only reflection, a deception

And the way that we frame it holds the correction, points the direction.

That we will go while in this life upon a planet in the spiral arm of a galaxy among billions who

would know what he would find in his time in the 21st century.
