Beat A Drum - Lyrics by Rem


Lyrics
The sun reflected in

The back of my eye.
I knocked my head against the sky.


The dragonflies are busy buzzing me.
A seahorse as if we were in the sea.


Half way from coal

Half way from diamond.

My fall knocked a mean chip out of me.

Gathering as far as I can reach.

Perched up on a precipice

And this is what I've seen.


This is all I want,

It's all I need.

This is all I am.

This is all I want,

It's all I need.

A bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree.

Doctorate in science and a theologians dream


The dragonflies are trying to lecture me.

The seahorses as if we were in the sea.


But this is all I want,

It's all I need.

This is all I am,

It's everything.

This is all I want,

It's all I need.


Beat a drum for me

Like a butterfly wing.

Tropical storm across the ocean.


But don't explain I'm sure I'll want to know

Don't forget we're just half way from coal.


This is all I want,

It's all I need.

This is all I am,

It's everything.

This is all I want,

It's all I need.
