TASTE OF THE SKY

You cannot describe the taste of the sky
To one who will not feel the touch of a rainbow
Unless both are strong enough to fly

If that spirit deep inside gives forth a silent cry
While the heart within your breast beats slow
You cannot describe the taste of the sky

As long as words can be found to deny
There can be no will to swim against the flow
Unless both are strong enough to fly

Should you never gain the strength to pry
Against those bitter winds that blow
You cannot describe the taste of the sky

We will never be able to reach so high
Unless there is contentment here below
You cannot describe the taste of the sky
Until both are strong enough to fly
