I wish. I wish, you were.
You were... the water,
And in the sun,
In the very ground, 
For then I'd know you,
For then I'd know you,
As if you were anyone,
As if you were,
You were anyone.
Between you and I,
An infinite divide, 
Divisible, divisible, indivisible,
Where only light can go. 

I only see it 'cause I knew not where to look,
Or ... was it that I had nowhere left worth lookin'?
I hear it though not everyone has had their say,
I hear it 'cause I wouldn't listen. 

And I taste it 'cause I wouldn't eat,
I dreamed it 'cause I couldn't sleep,
Just a hint of it, nothin' ever smelled so sweet,
The blind man blindfolded shuts his eyes,
In the deepest cave, and it gets him high.
Then he begins to cry,
"Sometimes I wish we really could be born again,
Sometimes I really wish we could be born again..."
