lyrics

I wake up to see the light in trees
golden leaves, seasons that turn
I've seen my life go by in dreams
days I choose, days I burn

I've seen the sun climb over skylines
the wind makes waves, seasons turn and turn
I dream of holding the whole world in my mind
mending the tears and healing the scorn

Sometimes the meadow seems so far away
distance we've known and we've travelled for days
we may be weary the struggle is long
forged in our footsteps, untied by our songs

My heart is breaking with beauty and thunder,
filled up with feeling, eyes open in wonder
My heart is breaking with beauty and thunder,
filled up with feeling, eyes open wide, eyes open wide

And what do you see, friend?
Outside your window
out past the brick walls
something green grows
and in your heart
what is the song there?
And in the dark soil
why do you grow fear?
Why do you grow fear?

Sometimes the meadow seems so far away
distance we've known and we've travelled for days
we may be weary the struggle is long
forged in our footsteps, untied by our songs

I turn my eyes to the flight of the sparrow
song of the robin, the path of the river
there is a web branching all through existence
it spreads and it mends with threads made of silver
oh silver, threads made of silver
