Smallest Things

Smallest Things (Trevor Wood)

I sit and stare outside my window
Waiting for the light to come in
Now I can’t see or hear anything
But I feel the sun rising and a warm westerly wind

CHORUS:
We get too caught up
in the pains of day to day
When the smallest things in life
can make those pains fade away
We keep on rushing down that road
to whatever lies ahead
And in the meantime
we forget the smallest things in life

Won’t you take me to that far off land
I ask the wind, the rock and sand
And as I walk I try to understand
Why so many of us never stop to take it in

CHORUS

I walk up to the riverbed
The water trickles between my toes and washes away
I look to the sky… I see freedom
I dream I have wings and fly away to that far off land

Won’t you take me to that far off land
I ask myself…
When I’m there I finally understand
Just how happy life can be and who I am

CHORUS
