The Earth Connects Us All

I wake up once more and reach out to find you
Only there is nothing in my arms, you are not there
For a moment I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders
Then I remember that we breathe the same air
Perhaps in a different place
Or in a different time
But we breathe the same air

I walk in a daze, my thoughts turning far away
Drifting here and there, in and out of smoke and bars
The world turning beneath my feet as I stand still
Then I remember that we walk under the same stars
Perhaps in a different place
Or in a different time
But we walk under the same stars

The empty forest paths become my friend
As I wander through the ancient growth
I pause in a small clearing, ready to weep
Then I remember that the moon shines down on us both
Perhaps in a different place
Or in a different time
But the moon shines down on us both

Hiding away all alone in my room
Feeling insignificant and small
But I smile and realise that I am not alone
I remember that the Earth connects us all
In a different place
In a different time
The Earth connects us all
