lyrics

I couldn’t breathe, these walls,
they were closing in on me
They speak to me, they speak to me,
but never say anything
I needed to breathe where dreams run free,
the air is clear between us

And I see the blue across the room,
blue eyes, the color of the sky
Blue eyes, the Colorado sky

I couldn’t see, my eyes were blind with rising steam
I needed to see blue sky surrounding me
I’ve seen gray eyes, Seattle winter sky,
unclear, like oxygen disguised

Carolina skies so wide, Colorado sky is wider
Carolina eyes open wide, Colorado opens them wider
