lyrics

one day the clouds just parted
and the blue just bled right out
hitting almost every corner
spilling all over the ground
and i thought "this just what we needed"
and i said "this is just what we needed"
and we raised our hands as we breathed in

one day the grass seemed greener
like it never felt so alive
and it just seemed to stretch for miles
now i never want to close my eyes
and i thought "this is just what we needed"
and i said "this is just what we needed"
and we spread our toes as we breathed in

one day the water looked clearer
like it only just poured in then
and the way that the light bounced off it
its like the surface returned our grins
and i thought "this is just what we needed"
and i said "this is just what we needed"
and we held our breath as we jumped in

i don't have to look far to see something
so amazing it just steals my breath
and i don't have to walk far to see the things
that will always live in my head

one day the trees seemed taller
like they wanted to touch the sky
every branch tried hard to reach sunlight
and the birds seemed to fly so high
and i thought "this is just what we needed"
and i said "this is just what we needed"
and we just laughed as we climbed them
