    well, i made it out,
    hit the trail,
    let the world pull
    the devil by the tail

    back to the garden,
    back to the roots
    packed a bag and
    tightened up my boots

    and the birds sang a
    welcome to me

    the birds were like a symphony

    crossed a river,
    climbed a mountain,
    went an extra mile,
    but who's counting?

    felt the coals from
    the fire getting hotter,
    fetched the wood,
    carried water

    in the land of the Cherokee

    the birds were like a symphony

    mountain laurel blooming
    in the sunshine

    a camera lens zooming in
    on a dream of mine

    and the world became
    precious to me

    the birds were like a symphony

    a happy thought,
    a new direction
    a stream multiplies
    the sun's reflection

    tuning up, tuning out,
    tuning in to what
    life is all about

    in a place where you
    believe (in) what you see

    the birds were like a symphony

    in a world made for you and me

    the birds were like a symphony Show less
