Lyrics

WHEREVER WE ARE

Where the river runs through the mountains steep

And hardly a man could live there

Where the silver wind blows the snow to heaps

And the warmth of the sun is stripped bare

In a deep cave where nobody has ever been

On ledges, thin and afar

Wherever we are

Where the shadows of trees cool us down and a breeze lifts our hair when we dance

Where the sheep run ahead to the hill and the dog is getting wild at the fence

In a meadow where nobody has ever been

Under a cloud shaped like a star

Wherever we are

Where pedestrians hurry themselves ducking, cursing, skipping red lights

Where the sirene's call and there is no attention at all where policemen and all babies cry

In a rain that nobody has ever been in

In the back of a chock-a-block bar

Wherever we are

Where the birds go when they are tired of the world, where the air is thin

Where there is no excuse and you can't find a spur of original sin

On a planet where nobody's ever been

Oh nobody has been

Wherever we are

 

Where the shadows of trees cool us down and a breeze lifts our hair while we dance
