Then It Occurs to You

From: Rob's Songs

Music and Lyrics: Rob Robleto

Rob Robleto - instruments, vocals

like an image in your mind that is turning
soaring, gliding on a warm stream of air
stretching just as high as sky will allow you
then it occurs to you you're free

like a wave of blue that's beating on the ocean
like an ancient drum the heartbeat of the sea
the eyes are closed water smashes a rhythm
then it occurs to you you're free

far away the sound of cool rain on the pane
far away it's all the same
there's a way for time to pass without a sound
remember why you left the ground

like a barren rock that's covered with moonlight
like a cloud whose shadow follows behind
the feeling rushes as you hear a clock strike midnight
then it occurs to you you're free

like an image in your mind that is turning
soaring, gliding on a warm stream of air
stretching just as high as sky will allow you
then it occurs to you you're free
