I wanna be where the talk of the town
Is about last night When the sun went down
Yeah, and the trees all dance And the warm wind blows And the same old sound 
And the water below Gives a gift to the sky
And the clouds give back Every time they cry
Make the grass grow green Beneath my toes
And if the sun comes out
I'll paint a picture all about The colors I been dreamin' of
The hours just don't seem enough To put it all together Maybe its as strange as it seems Mmm, mmm

And the trouble I find
Is that the trouble finds me
Its a part of my mind
It begins with a dream And the feelin' I get
When I look and I see
That this world is a puzzle Find all of the pieces And put it all together And then I'll rearrange it
I'll follow it forever And always be as strange as it seems Mmm, mmm
 Nobody ever told me not to try
Not to try Always try Always try

And the water below Gives a gift to the sky
And the clouds give back Every time they cry
Make the grass grow green Beneath my toes
And if the sun comes out
I'll paint a picture all about The colors I been dreamin' of
The hours just don't seem enough To put it all together Always be as strange as it seems Mmm, mmm
