I'm alive

Mountains high as my hands reach 
Sun sets on my mind
My skin is the night sky,
With spots as stars 
illuminating through the night
Eyes like sensors  
Detecting every motion, 
Set by life and i always take caution
Moving from point to point 
So nobody can join,
Like nobody sees the lines  
The trail leading to the mountain top
Just beneath the sun,
Spirit powered by solar energy.

I run as far as my will takes me
And I won't wake up from this fantasy, 
I'll keep on dreaming
Like i suffer from hypersomnia.
A Voice that sounds like a massive crowd
Shoulder blades as wings 
So i fly higher than my degree
Breaking the laws of gravity,
Landing in water but walking through fire
Than they ask how i feel.

I'm alive, I'm a tree
So I'm born free
Spreading my branches and I'm growing leaves,
Green as green can be,
Supported by my roots so i don't forget where i stand
And i never stop growing,
Cause I'm not just any tree
I bloom money. 

The wind undertakes me
The greetings from the sky
I fly, i see the clouds
I am the wind,
Seeing the world
Drifting from side to side,
Gliding through everything 
I'm alive 
So i fly and I never look down.
