Blue skies
Blue skies wrapped around me
Green grass
Green grass all that I see
We're taking time
Live life as it will be
Under blue skies

Denied all that I am
Gave up
Gave up most of my plans
For any dime
Oh what a big lie!
But the blue skies
Set me right again

Breaking right before me
Mother come help us please
We're losing time
Burning through all the light
That the blue skies
Blues skies need

Lay in
Lay in my arms a while
Stay in
Stay inside a while
And take your time
Thankful one thing is free
The sweet air
That the blue skies
That the blue skies bring
