The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere

You thought that you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of imagination

You love this town
Even if this doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

Oh, touch me
Take me to the other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a helpless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
And see the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out, yeah

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

Oh, touch me
Take me to the other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Need it now

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

Oh, touch me
Take me to the other place
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
