lyrics

I walked out of the canyon and stepped into the light
I walked out of the canyon when the sun hit my eye
La-ooo-ay

Just about a year ago I sold all my clothes
I bought a pair of sandals from my uncle on loan
And walked out on my own

Now I see the poetry in everything I see
The dew on the vine, the Chrysanthemum tea
It’s like that hair I shaved had been blinding me
La-ooo-wee

If this life is just a portal, well I guess that’s just as well
I shed my armor like a cicada shell
And move off into the colored hills

I don’t say this enough
Whatever powers reign above
I don’t say this enough
I think it could be
It could be enough

I walked out of the canyon and stepped into the light
I walked out of the canyon when the sun hit my eye
La-ooo-ay

There I was blinded momentarily
I stumbled to and fro into a ravine
I guess that that’s the price I pay for living free
La-ooo-wee

Now I’m headed on my way to another side
Another shore, a moon, a beach on which for me to hit my stride
But I’m wearing sunglasses this time
La-ooo-ay
La-ooo-ay
La-ooo-ay
