No Telling Where
It will change you like a lover When you dive below the reef And see the phosphorescent colors Shimmer way beyond belief But when taken to the surface All that color fades away 'Cause when lifted out of water Living coral turns to gray But down deep, it's so bright That the light won't leave you You've seen this sight And they can't believe you 'Cause your words go dull And they never could explain There is just no telling Where you've been On the map it shows the mountain But I'd never seen a glimpse Of the hundred miles of vista Represented by an inch That was just a trail of bread crumbs All their words set out so clear But there's nothing they could tell me That could ever take me here To this view, this height That the heart remembers It's proof, it's life It's the burning ember My words go cold And there's nothing to explain There is just no telling Where I've been When this sunrise sees me The first light burns brand new Seems so easy To tell what I've been through But my little camera can't keep up With panoramas all around There's just too much view to capture When we stand on sacred ground Though my mind cannot explain it My heart's filled up to the sky I know words could not contain it But I'm fool enough to try Then you smile at me And my heart is listening Your eyes, they speak And there's nothing missing It's quiet up here We can listen to the wind 'Cause there's just no telling Where we've been
