Around Us from such heights on Vimeo.



lyrics:

I see the walls, then see them fall
You break through them all
I see you crawl, now you stand tall
Grow and grow till tall

In storm we scream against the stream
Our eyes watering
Jump into lakes, the surface breaks
We swim underwater
And our mouths, in tune

We all want to grow with the seeds we will sow
We all want to go with the trees we will grow
We all want to know when we're all meant to go
To a place you and I

I see forest, a treasure chest
Full of labyrinth
I see a door, holes in the floor
We'll break seeds, we'll grow

There's songs, songs you bring to us
You pin both the wings on us
I hear, I see you sing for us
You go tie a string around us

We all want to grow with the seeds we will sow
We all want to go with the trees we will grow
We all want to know when we're all meant to go
To a place you and I

Oh, this is wonderful. I love how the vid starts in this happy place and then even when slowly the stakes get higher and and more intense, there's still this sense of hope and togetherness.
