Samoa 06:02
Won't take long to bring the mountain down Floating through the underbrush to get yourself to town By tomorrow the ocean front be lapping at your door Gonna find there is no place to lay your head no more...in Samoa If you make it to Samoa Better have your swimming shoes on Next time that you wake up in Samoa Don't be surprised to find the island gone Can you take me to Samoa I've been waiting for the plane Need to find myself in Samoa Before it's gone, I hope you understand Cost you an arm and a leg And you might have to lend an ear To find out how to just get near Samoa Might have to scrimp and beg And the cost might be too dear But I'd do it all to just get near Samoa Let's make plans to meet up in Samoa I hear it's nice any time of year Set up our beach chairs on the shore Sit back and watch the island disappear

Here We Are 04:09
Woke up, it was sunny Then the clouds took over, funny How it didn't take so long For the rain to keep on falling Running through the wilderness We cry out and bang our chest And wonder that we never take for granted Why we love Here we are, good to be here, good to see you now Here we are, holding on to right now, we've come so far Here we are, good to be here, good to see you now Here we are, holding on to right now, here we are Morning filled with lightning flashing Soon enough the sun was casting Shadows on the wall outlines of our heads together As we studied one another Slowly smiles began to flutter Back and forth we knew this was a good day to be here Fell asleep to distant thunder Dreams were filled with awe and wonder Flying through the days and nights and places we could be Pitching pennies in the fountain Quarter moon climbs up the mountain Shining on the wishes that we dreamed of coming true

Tribe of runners, racing in bare feet Miles through the desert, drawn to the drum beat Hearts pound with the music of a nation Painted bodies dance in celebration, painted bodies dance Copper Canyon, rich with bird song A burro's bell jingles all day long To live a simple life beneath the sun Tarahumara, Tarahumara run Wrinkled hands weave baskets of fibers Aging eyes scan for moneyed buyers A dark-haired child learns the art She needs Abuela's help to start She needs Grandma's help Some of the kids learn ABCs and math In Nike's T-shirt, they blaze a new path Into the future they don't need the past The old ways won't last, the old ways won't last Artisans sell baskets and rugs Across the road get plastic scorpions To get a picture throw candy to the young Unaware of the harm being done Is the price too steep to pay? A way of life slipping away But who's to say that progress is bad It's hard hauling water from the river by hand It's hard hauling water from the river

As I look around and feel like this is home What will I hold onto in the days when I am gone Though I know the spirit never dies And we're forever you and I I sometimes can't imagine moving on Take me to that place again Where you and I danced in the wind Tell me stories of the days before the fall I don't think I remember them at all When you were young and the world was old All the stories, we heard them told Sitting round the fire in the night Searching for the answers in the light To the questions we might see unfold Take me to that place again Where you and I danced in the wind Tell me stories of the days before the fall That's how we remember them at all When we were old and the world was young All the stories, we heard them sung The moon can dim the starshine in the night And even though the end may be in sight It's clear to see the story's just begun
