The heart is a bloom Shoots up through the stony ground.
You thought you’d found a friend To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
You’re on the road But you’ve got no destination You’re in the mud In the maze of her imagination
You love this town Even if that doesn’t ring true You’ve been all over And it’s been all over you It’s a beautiful day Don’t let it get away It’s a beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Teach me I know I’m not a hopeless case
See the world in green and blue See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth After the flood all the colors came out
It was a beautiful day Don’t let it get away Beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Reach me I know I’m not a hopeless case
What you don’t have you don’t need it now What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now Don’t need it now
Was a beautiful day
Have a beautiful day!
