about

One of the ghosts that often haunts is our childhood, with its wide-eyed innocence and youthful exuberance. Why not find joy in the passage of time? What’s to worry? “Heaven knows where we are.”

lyrics

"First of May"

Hey...feels like the first of May
Not a cloud in the sky,
Not a cloud in my mind.

Blue, big beautiful blue
The sun's shining bright,
So bright that we'll find your shine.

Cool breeze rushes over the fields
Fledglings are flying,
New foals are galloping free.

You smile...and your smile says it all...

The world is in motion, we're all in the flow
Where life sends us, Heaven only knows.
But, Heaven knows where we are.

Daydream by a clear running stream
Rushing over the stones,
Smoothing over our souls.

Let's run...let the joy fill our lungs.
Run until we collapse,
Laughing in the tall grass.

And, so...as the hills turn to gold
You tell me you love me
As we turn for home, sweet home.

Someday, we'll look back and say,
"Remember that moment? Remember that day?
We really blossomed that first day of May."

Everything's all right...everything flows
And, where life sends us, Heaven only knows.

Heaven knows where we are.

"It's actually the people of America who wrote these songs," said Kevin Higgins, the duo's main songwriter. "They told us their stories and we listened."
