If they tell me that the bees don't make honey anymore
What am I supposed to tell you
If they tell me that the ocean is tired of her shores
Tell me what am I supposed to tell you

When I can't tell you anything but the truth
I can't tell you anything but the truth

What happens to an eagle's nest in a storm
How does the mama keep the baby warm
The wind is telling us that it's time
And what if we're not ready to fly

Well, I can't tell you anything but the truth
I cant tell you anything but the truth

Tree tops they touch the ground
In the morning walk with no sound
Hear no birds, hear no planes
Through the mud, feel the clay
Build it up, make it sing
Make it strong, give it wings

But I can't tell you anything but the truth
And I can't tell you anything but the truth

What is this place, who am I
Why did we come here
What is this place, who am I
Why did we come here

I don't know, I don't know
But I don't know
That we're meant to know

I don't know, I don't know
But I don't know
That we're meant to know
