Reaching for the Sun

Genre: Americana/Country

Lyrics

I am on a mission, a borderline obsession,
I wanna know where in the world is the tallest living thing.
Is it Northern California, deep in the canyons?
I long to discover the tree of my dreams.

And one by one I find them, far from any highway,
Centuries old and thirty stories tall.
Towering over the floor of the forest,
I’m climbing in giants and feeling so small.

I find myself in the redwoods, like brothers, we are one.
Born on terra firma, reaching for the sun.

An open air cathedral, timeless and primeval,
Lush, like a Garden of Eden on high.
Undiscovered riches of flora and fauna,
A world of its own, next to the sky.

I find myself in the redwoods, like brothers, we are one.
Born on terra firma, reaching for the sun.

I pray for the strength of my brothers.
May you thrive on breath I exhale.
I live on the air you release to the heavens,
A union both sacred and frail.

I find myself in the redwoods, like brothers, we are one.
Born on terra firma, reaching for the sun.
Born on terra firma, ooh, ooh,
Reaching for the Sun.
