Story Behind The Song

once upon a time we were living little white lies. Told ourselves we were fine like a fish on a broken line.
Feeling around without any eyes wearing my wings, but not sure I'll fly. Feeling the water, in with the tide. Become one with the sun as we begin to rise.
Through my eyes dream aloud where am I now is my head in the clouds. Gentle hands brush your face. Heat of skin keeps us spinning in place.
Feeling around without any eyes wearing my wings but not sure I'll fly. Welcome the rain become one next to you. Beauty in breaths. Inhale this new you.
Some people come and some people go. When, why, or how I won't claim to know. Out of my hands how one becomes two, and things make a little more sense when I'm with you.
Once upon a time we held out our hands and started to climb
