    Lyrics

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

    The dragonflies are busy buzzing me
    Seahorses if we were in the sea.

    Halfway from coal, halfway to diamond.
    My fall knocked a mean chip out of me.

    I'm gathering as far as I can reach
    we're perched upon the precipice
    and this is what I've seen.

    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.

    A bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree
    A doctorate in science and a theologian's dream.

    The dragonflies are trying to lecture me
    Seahorses if we were in the sea.

    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.

    Don't explain, I'm sure I'll want to know.
    Don't forget, we're just halfway 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.
