I think perhaps it's the clearer air
Or it's just that you can see further up here
Could it be a little perspective was all we needed

Home in a village on a hill
Around here you take the bad with the good
A simple life is often misunderstood
And all we have are the people around
And what is ours are the friends we've found
The time is short and the days rattle by
And I've found a place to be...

But inside you’ll find you’re pining for that one place
Feet may lead you even beyond the sea
Over mountains and through deserts unending
But in the distance, beyond horizons, you’ll see that hill,
