Twenty Years Later Lyrics

Lyrics:

(Anastasio/Marshall)
© Who Is She? Music, BMI

I can hold my breath for a minute or so
Five days without food is as long as Iíll go
I didnít sleep once for four days and three nights
I once didnít stop for seven red lights
I jumped into water thatís fifty degrees
I rowed in a kayak in thirty-foot seas
I stayed in the woods for a week with a knife
A flint when I lost it nearly cost me my life
Twenty years laterÖ
Iím still upside down

Itís a small world
And itís turning real fast
(Here upside down)
Itís a new day
And the mourning has passed
(Turned upside down)
Itís a short road
But the mountains are tall
(Land upside down)
Itís a small world
But we all start out small

I hurtle through air though I feel Iím alone
I stick with the others to the skin of the stone
I stop for a stranger just to give him a lift
I cling like a lizard to the side of the cliff
I treat every minute like an hour and then
It seems like a year has just flashed by again
We build a foundation but where do we stand
When all air is water and all water is land

Twenty years laterÖ
Iím still upside down

Itís a small world
And itís turning real fast
(Here upside down)
Itís a new day
And the mourning has passed
(Turned upside down)
Itís a short road
But the mountains are tall
(Land upside down)
Itís a small world
But we all start out small

Feel it turning in circles
And youíre never the same again
Spin slowly while sounds cascade
And became
Iím here upside down

Inside this silent scene
All are free, all are free
Second time around
